what's the best way to revise for the new spec or just an OCR biology exam in general?

I was thinking I should just learn the whole textbook off by heart in short (and obviously do exam questions), since I've heard OCR are really ****ing crazy and even give questions on the exam that aren't in the spec...

I just want to be safe and prepared as possible, what do you think?

Hey does any one want to team up with me in creating flashcards which contains past papers questions with the mark scheme at the back?
I am doing this because after researching, to get an A, they say PAST PAPERS and memorise the mark scheme so i am doing just that, with additional notes.
But i want to finish before resumption so everything is set for exam use.
Anyone? i have already started (cram.com: FLorenceAshaye) just what someone to help?

They only go outside of the spec if they've given you enough information to work with. Basically, they tell you something about a process/animal/etc you've never heard of, then they expect you to use your own knowledge, and what they've told you, to answer the question.
Don't sweat it!

I don't take biology but I'm hoping my school will let me take it after the first term, if I do I will be in desperate need of some help to catch up, can I contact you to use the flashcards if I need them?
