This is how I revise.
Read the book chapter, then read the lecture slides, find the relevant content (by comparing the slides and book) and make detailed notes on them.

Convert those notes to a graphical form (table, images, charts).

Then complete as many past paper questions as you can using your notes. If you find anything is missing you can add to it.

Thanks for the reply.

I'd say 1,5 hours on the book, 1 hour on the slides, 1 hour combining them, 1 hour creating the charts, 1.5 hours of past questions.

Once I had the relevant material, I spent the rest of the time going through the charts.

Hi,
I sat my A2 paper last year (got a B and so was pretty chuffed as it was through distance learning, basically self taught!). I recently came across this web site when I was helping a friend this year and wish I'd seen it last year as it gives great tips for A Level Business Studies students and also getting past exam nerves tips (something I've always struggled with).

Good luck!

It actually depends what kind of learner you are: visual, auditory etc. Sometimes what works for other people wont work for you. But so far, what I've seen that works for everyone is having flash cards and revise using them regularly. Also, study in short bursts instead of one long session. For example, 25 minute of study and 5 minutes break,or 45 minute of study with 15 minute break, whatever you prefer. Before your exam, pick a topic from the subject, take a piece of paper and write down everything you remember about it without referring to a book. It's called memory dump and it helps you figure out what you know and what you don't.
