Ways to re­vise be­fore your ex­ams

4) Read the book pages that are rel­e­vant. Read the lec­ture notes. Do this in block mode. Now you have a great overview.

5) High­light the key phrases in the lec­ture notes. You should only mark about 10 to 20% of the to­tal text.

Each high­lighted item should spark a mem­ory that brings back the in­for­ma­tion sur­round­ing that key phrase.

6) Go through the book and take notes. Tip: if you write th­ese by hand, it will boost short-term mem­ory into long-term mem­ory.

How­ever, if you have messy hand­writ­ing, type up your notes in­stead. Your notes will form a vis­ual mem­ory too, so the aim is to be neat.

7) Add your lec­ture note high­lights to your text­book notes.

Lec­tures notes are es­sen­tial to re­vi­sion. Make sure you go through them care­fully and high­light key points.
