    I think it depends on how your brain works, you need to do something with the information, for me flashcards and past papers are the only way to get it in. But whatever works for you

    It's scientifically proven to be a good way of revising because your brain is forced to process and understand the information. For me personally it works very well, but it all depends on what kind of learner you are (auditory, visual, etc)

    don't just copy from the book tho
    spend like 10 mins reading the page then write down everything you remember on a page and then check to see what you missed
    that forces you to actually digest the info and not just mindlessly copy

    instead of conveying info that way why not try explaining and teaching someone the stuff? if you can teach it you know the stuff well enough
