    Really finding it difficult to revise for books in general. I/m studying the Streetcar named Desire and The Lovely Bones.

    How do you revise for books and plays? So far for the SCND I've just wrote a few quotes for each theme.

    Thank you.

    I just revise quotes. Once you've read the play a few times you soaks up all the themes etc. If you remember the quotes you can apply them to any theme. I did a streetcar named desire mock recently and got an A from simply remembering the quotes! Critical reading helps too.

    Thank you. You have made it sound so simple and easier than I was imagining it to be.
