    I make notes and try and get 1 topic to 1 or 2 pages. Then I learn my notes word for word

    Make mind maps or take notes, which are basically a summary of a chapter or a topic. Then, you study those mind maps and notes. Afterwards, you watch some TV or do something else for about one hour, so that you get your mind off of the topic you were studying. After that hour or so, open a blank word document or an app and try, from your memory, to write all the stuff you remember from the chapter. Then you get the mind maps or the notes and see if you missed anything. If something was missing, you write it in the word document. This way you have a summary written by yourself with all the key points and you also revised!

    If instead you are studying something like mathematics, then things change a little. Because maths is all about doing exercises, try to do a bunch of them and creating strategies. This way, you will always know what to do when you encounter a typical maths problem.
    Once you have written these strategies, try solving some problems, until you feel comfortable with the exercise.
    The good thing about having a strategy is that you have a concrete procedure for an exercise, so if you forget how to solve a problem in a month or so, you will always have the strategy written in your notebook.
