    take notes as you read it helps you absorb it better, you could also try taking a break after 30 mins because your concentration levels wane, particulary if your revsing something you dont like.

    Get yourself a countdown timer and set it for a length of time that you can work for. I set mine for an hour, work solidly through that and then have a break. Whenever I feel bored and want to be distracted, I just look at the timer and think to myself that I can do that in X minutes. Have a break, then repeat.

    Also, make a list of the topics you have to cover and cross them off as you go. It really helps to motivate me to see that I'm actually getting somewhere. Also, if you find yourself browsing the net/on TSR/facebook, get Firefox and the Leechblock add-on, which can block certain sites at certain times of the day, or it limits the time you can spend on them.
