If I'm doing active recall on a specific topic should I read on it first and then blurt everything out on a page? or should a I try and write everything i remember and then read on the topic and fill in what I didn't remember?

I’d say the latter as the former is just regurgitating what you’ve just read. The latter is also good at showing what gaps are missing in your knowledge.

A few active recall methods
Get a friend or relative to test you orally. Have them ask you quick fire questions which you need to answer.

Use flashcards. Write down something on one side then turn it over. Test yourself using them.

Look at some useful resources. Look at the exam questions in them.
