You will need:
- a CGP book
- the specification for your subject
- some different coloured pens

My method is basically:
1. Chuck on a rubbish Netflix show like Suits
2. Start with the first spec point (1.1 or whatever)
3. Come up with some key questions for that spec point
4. Write these questions down and come up with summarised, bullet-pointed answers using the CGP text
5. Make a flashcard using one question on one side and the answer on the other side. Come up with your own colour coding system to emphasise key points.
6. Write the relevant spec point in the top right corner (all good to have multiple cards for each spec point). This will help if you identify weak points in your knowledge.

I practice mine a few times a week, usually when I'm doing dishes after dinner. I'll just have someone else quiz me whilst my hands are busy. Any cards I get wrong, I put in a separate pile and these will be the first I get requizzed on next time.

Flash cards don't help me personally.
I rather just read from a book for like 15 minutes on a topic.
And then do exam questions on that topic.

I did a study in how to strengthen memory. So basically if are using flash cards today. Come back to them next week. Then next month. And so on. It helps improving recall of that memory more.
