    Step 1: Listen in class
    Step 2: Revise
    Step 3: Practise
    Step 4: Take the exam

    There. Saved you a likely boring read and probable waste of money. Find a revision technique that works for you, and you should be fine.

    I just reserved the book today and couldn't put it down. I would really recomend, the main method of revision mentioned in the book is layered learning. So if you have 80 days before start of exams, layer one is going through each of your subjects content subject by subject thoroughly so 10 days for each subject if you have 4 subjects, then second layer is moderate repetition of all stuff subject by subject but 5 days each and 3rd layer is brief repetition 2 days each... I would recomend to get the book and get the full details and tips.
