Many of my teachers have said posters and sticky notes speckled across their homes has benefitted them. Is this method of revision actually effective?

You never know unless you try it. I do hang up some notes but they are only for reference purposes e.g a periodic table

YES YES YES
I stuck the order of the classification system on my mirror and i can still remember it (which is good as i study biology now) but i can still visualise how i wrote it on the note.
i also found cue cards helpful. for history, i would buy packs of cue cards from tesco for £1.50 and write a question on the front like "what year was the wall street crash" and on the opposite side i would put the asnwr ie. "1929". I then had a bank of cards for each topic *colour coded* and i kept one set in my blazer pocket and it would be my challenge for that week to learn all of them. And whenever i was bored say stood in the lunch que or waiting for a friend outside class i would just whack the old que cards out, and they honestly got me my A* in history. you have to try that technique, its fun too if you play it as a revision game with friends and give points!

No. Not if you're like me and good at ignoring them.
