    Same as any other.

    Make a plan and understand the spec.
    Read the texts once to get a feel for them as works of literature, then read them again more carefully.
    Master core material- Make notes based on plot, themes, characters and authors style.

    Get exam papers and practice exam technique. Use mark schemes.

    Buy some decent revision books. Mr Bruff English Lit A is a cheap start.
