When to start revising and the best techniques for A Levels??Watch this thread
Also what revision method is the most effective. Mindmaps, Note-taking, Flashcards?
Finally are the A Level CGP Books useful by any chance? Are they good at explaining a new topic or a topic that's not that easy to understand at first?
You may find it helpful! Good luck
People tend to say you have to find the revision method that works best for you, but I personally haven’t found one particular method. I do a combination of notes writing, condensing, flash cards, and sticky notes. Once I’ve done using these methods I like to use mind maps to summarise. It’s probably not the most time effective to do numerous methods like I have, but I guess it means I go over everything multiple times in multiple different ways. If I could find one particular method that worked better than the rest then a levels would be much easier!
I didn’t find the cgp books incredibly useful as with my subjects - particularly chemistry - the revision guides seemed to skim over some topics so they didn’t really help my understanding. I’d say they’re useful for memorising certain information (for example flame test colours in chemistry) but not much for in depth knowledge.
