It isnt all abiout memorisation, but you need:

1. A revision plan so you know the tasks you have to do and you make sure you cover the revision you need to do over that ten week period.
2. You need to do daily amounts according to 1 and master the core material. Than includes taking notes, making revision notes, mind maps etc, so you understand your curses.
3. You then need to set aside time and the last part of your revision to practice exam papers. This helps you improve your exam technique and show you what you need to know.

Heres a guide to focusing on revision memory techniques.

Memorising is no good without understanding, which in turn is no good without being able to apply the knowledge.

Assuming that you mean just to memorise the content, I suggest that you make flashcards (online or physical) and then go through them. After, you can answer some practice questions on the topic to see if you really understand the content and can recall it.

I personally recommend Quizlet.

Agree! Practising questions is much better to memory than reading or writing notes.

As mentioned, quizlet is a good source. Seneca Learning is similar and also free!. And download past papers from your exam board.
