Not sure there are enough Mr Bruff videos?
Revision book on Characters, themes or authors intentions. Its a bit long so I think notes are important as otherwise it would send you to sleep. From there just practice essay questions.

I think the trick is to try and make literary insights. You can know the book inside out, but you have to give your own take on; the subjects covered, both social and political, literary techniques such as language which has double meanings and explaining why the writer chose that specific phrase. You can even include personal opinion like on how well the writer conveys their target message. However, I should mention that what a writer's 'target message' is always a subject of much debate. One thing to note - if you're going to offer you're own opinion on the writer's techniques (which I strongly recomend you do) always explain your reasoning behind your inference. Else it comes across as groundless criticism.

I hope this helped.

There will be lots of revision books plus tes will have notes you can buy.
Jane Eyre is long and some of it really dull, so getting an oversight and a compact set of notes is important.
It should have been obvious Mr Bruff would not be enough.
