How good are these revision guides for learning the content, not revising, in a short amount of time? Is concise but deatilled enough for the exam? And also how would I revise with it

Here is the book if your wondering what it looks like

They are extremely good. It covers the entire specification and doesn't take that long to cover. It's very in depth, hence why I primarily use it for my own revision. I would recommend using it, along with other basic resources, e.g. the specification and mark schemes.

How do you revise with it? because most times I will end up just copying the book out

With factual subjects, e.g. science and history, I revise using mindmaps. I would read the content in the textbook and write it out in my own words. Almost as though I'm explaining it to someone else. When writing your notes, write it out in FULL. Honestly, I have tried many methods prior to this 'traditional' method , including writing out your notes summarised on a flashcard. This made me write very vague answers in the exam and it limited my knowledge a lot- I just knew the general stuff and not the detail. That's my personal experience, so I recommend revising in detail.

Good luck!!
