Revision Techniques - January 14th 2009, 12:53 PM

So i remember before there were lots of threads about revision techniques, and they really helped me. So was hoping we could start one up again?

Basically a list of ideas that will help people revise. I'll start, but please add anything you can think of, it will really help me, and hopefully others as well xxx

  • Mind Maps
  • Note-Cards/Flash Cards
  • Reading through model answers for exam questions
  • Take a break every 30mins or so
  • Get someone else to test you
  • Morning before exam, just go over key points
  • Sleep well the night before
  • Eat well before exam

What helps me is getting people to ask me questions, and making notes on what I need to revise. I also wrote up my notes after each lesson, which helps me remember

h is a bluebird that you see from afar
it is real and as sure as the first evening star
can't touch it, or buy it, or lock it up tight
but its there just the same
making things turn out right

- Note cards/flashcards
- Memory games?? (not so much for me, but it depends on the person and/or subject)
- If it is math or science, go over problems until you understand them
- Stay after school with your teacher(s) if you are confused about something

Check out my blog: White-Out Blots

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday,
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way,
How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all,
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall,
It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

- Take a Minute, K'naan

-Study groups. These only work if you have already revised your notes and know what you are talking about cause then you can have discussions and better your understanding on the topic at hand.

-Drawings. Especially for biology. I'll take a big piece of paper or bristol board and get bright markers and draw all my diagrams in really big. Post it up on my wall and just look at them over and over again.

In Math and Science, it's not just going over problems for me, it's covering up the answer and DOING them again until I can do them the first time I see them.

In groups, I like explaining concepts/ideas to classmates/friends. If you can explain the effect the 2nd Great Awakening had on US history to your friend, you can write an essay about it on your exam.

Congrats Canada's Juniors! 5 in a row!
Last Sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain.
Week before, they all seemed the same.
And oh, I ain't wastin' time no more
Cause time goes by like hurricanes, and faster things.
--The Allman Brothers Band

Things seem impossible until you start to do them.

PM me anytime. I love to talk. :]

I find the best technique is to get a fresh set of eyes to look at your paper like a friend that is a grade above you or someone similar.
