I understand the content completely in Biology, for example, but I forget some of the little details that I need for the exam.

I learn best by using lists/tables, but flash cards are a great way to get the wording right (what the examiners are looking for).

Other than that, mnemonics are useful, the odder the better, visualising it(eg organelles) and making it rhyme etc

Why not just remember SOH-CAH-TOA? ;p
For me, I'd definitely suggest flashcards - they don't take too long to do each day (depending on how many you have), and I can still remember stuff from ages back thanks to them. Works well with equations, etc. I also use them for diagrams, to help me remember the many different parts in an organ, etc. Of course, this is particularly useful with Bio, but flashcards help with other subjects too (e.g. memorising vocab for a language, memorising formulas for Physics etc).
Hope that helps!

I agree with previous posts; flash cards are amazing.
They help with definitions and pretty much anything really and they also help to consolidate info as well as helping you to learn new content
