Student life, in partnership with UEA
I made flashcards with an app on my phone. I'd test myself during spare moments of my day such as commuting, waiting for lectures etc. Doesn't feel as tedious as reading through a long pile of lecture notes although it's only really useful for rote-learning (rather than understanding a concept).

2) Use them to help you understand set problems, essay assignments etc that go with the course. No course is "simply" the lectures, its the full package of lectures, notes, linked problems and you putting it all together mentally by using them. You only really get to understand the notes by using them for something challenging.
3) Based on (2) make condensed versions of your notes with all the key elements that _you_ personally find you need to remember to do the problems. This will be different for every student, so dont expect the lecturer or a friend to do this for you.
4) Memorise (3). be able to write them out complete from memory, practice until you can do this perfectly.
5) Do past exam questions, refine (3) and (4) if it turns out you missed something on the 1st pass (you almost certainly will).
