    What do you think the best way to revise is? Do you make notes from the text book or just read it over and over again? I have always made notes and then learn from them. But I am starting to think that is a waste of time and I should just read the book and learn it that way.

    Both ways work, it's whatever works for you. If you're more of a visual learner then maybe reading notes and books will help. Notes are just to summarise the information to make it easier for you to remember. There's nothing wrong with reading the book aswell, so long as your mind is absorbing the information either way.
