I have 4 different books for revising GCSE English. Is it a good idea to learn them by memory? I thought that I could learn those books by memory and then in a few months I would test my knowledge and writing skills.


In the past, I have learned GCSE Maths books by memory and did well in the exams.

What do you mean by learning books? If you mean memorising words then I don't see how this would help you in maths. For English id advise practising planning essays and your answers to questions.

Absolutely no need to memorise entire books. Learn some key quotes and analysis but really all you need is a good idea of where everything is in the texts. You should be able to say what language devices, themes, technique, etc. can be found in each chapter. It's more about developing the skill to answer questions than memorising text.
