    Should I do a specification based revision like my Sciences? As in, use the textbook to only look for the stuff the learning objectives say?
    I am revising for GCSE OCR Computing and it mentions systems, operating systems and Linux in the first topic; I don't understand some of it and I HATE books that add irrelevant information only to make it more confusing. Systems, Operating systems and Linux were not in the learning objectives though, all it says in the LO is know what a computer system is. Should I ignore the rest of the stuff and only look for the stuff I'm meant to learn?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you're revising for the theory part of GCSE OCR Computing use TeachICT it's a very good site. If you have any further Qs PM me.
