Well here's how I will revise when I get closer to my A2:

read the texts again (so have to start revision early to fit this in)
sort out all notes (if not already done so) into character profiles and thematically grouped pages.
try to remember important quotes, preferably some that can be used for more than one character and some that cover themes as well as character.
post its around the place to remember quotes & contextual details.
and i'm not sure if a teacher would recommend it but last year I watched the video of taming of the shrew again a couple of days before the exam & it worked a treat for clarifying the plot and everything and also i remembered some good quotes.

thats' what I'll do for the play.. as for the poetry, we've not covered it yet but I imagine it will be more notes based rather than remembering, as we can take the book into the exam ~ so will have to make sure that my book has comprehensive notes inside and that i know what poems go with what poems if i have to do a comparison paper.

As above, but also try to read some critical essays on your texts (should be some in your school library). York notes are brilliant for helping to catagorise your ideas.
