-flash cards (Quizlet or paper)
-past papers (timed and not timed)
-writing notes of what you can remember after reading or watching a revision video/text
-really find out your weaknesses and focus on this
It varies a little per subject

The most effective way of revising is testing and varying the way you get the info. If you're just reading the revision guide, you're unlikely to remember that much of it. So try and watch youtube videos, find podcasts to do and find online sites which present the info to you in a more interactive way (eg BBC Bitesize does this)
For testing, try and vary how you do this also. Whilst reading through the info and making notes, make yourself little quizzes and then do them a couple of nights later to see how much of it you remember. Flashcards can also be good, and online quizzing sites like Quizlet. I've also been finding Seneca Learning super helpful because it teaches you the info and then tests you on it but in a way that makes it v memorable. So wworth trying that out. And closer to exams you should definitely do past paper practice to improve technique and timing!
