    How do you revise because when I ask my friends most of them say they just read through their notes. I don't find this effective at all, and don't think it's really revision. You....?

    Read, write, forget, re-read, maybe re-write if it's complicated...oh and some stuff I write on post-it notes and stick around my room so it can never escape me...I learnt the tests for anions and cations this way.

    I find normal conservative reading exstremely boring! The best way I try to revise is to actively read, where you basically get a number of dfferent high-lighters and a pen, high-light all the key bits that you want to remember and add any additional notes i.e. examples or translations

    hope this helps...
    good luck in all your exams

    I do lots and lots of past papers. I do maths, f.maths and physics though so i can do that and it works. I'd hate to do english or any of those other arty subjects.

    hiya

    well i revise by doing lost of past papers any questions

    get people (family and friends) to ask me stuff to explain something this helps

    and as i have a picture memory i cant take in text at all

    i do mind maps liek spider diagrams things like that

    but it depend on the course see i do IT (thats easy for me i revise by drawing things diagrams spider diagrams and that)

    geo that has case studys (if need help there i made web site with all my case studies i did something i like doind web deisgn to help enjoy revising)

    then graphics thats a hard one ( i done paper questions ) i find radom things in the house products and wrote like a specification on it and how it would be made what made out of

    doing things i to to revise helps me mite u just depend on your subject and how your mind works

    i also have msn conversations with my class mates where we ask each other things about that subject which helps if u know you explain to them just as you would do in an exam to an examiner and if u dont know you can ask your mates so this is cool (one bad thing is you can get distracted)

    if you need any help with ways of revising ask me i had lots of ways that teachers have told me about.

    I tell myself I'm going to revise, then don't, then the night before I cram as much info in as I can, get worried, don't remember anything and mess up the exam. Anyway, back to cramming for my exams tomorrow...

    Make notes, say notes outloud, write notes again. Go over. Go over. Go over. I'm a slow learner.

    I read books and look at exam papers. I don't like reading my notes much.

    Do what works for you.
