That won't do you any good in philosophy, unfortunately.

when I was revising for my history GCSE, for anything factual I made a color-coded A5 size booklet and drew only pictures in it. That was really helpful for me to link topics to images, so when I was trying to think of something I would mentally go to that page in the booklet and I was able to map out in my head the different images that I had drawn into the page. Keep it really minimal and maybe that will work for you. Good luck!

Ah - I assumed (apologies) this'd be at degree level (I think that's the other philosophy forum, I'm easily confused :laugh: ). In that case, just frequently revisiting the key principles might work for you. I'm lucky in that once I read something properly, it tends to stick in. I reckon the guy that said repetition has it right!
