I allways find if i go through exam questions it helps because you get used to the termonology used
Also if your like me and listen to your ipod alot then record you notes on them and then when your out and about you can listen to them
Also coming up with silly stories and things like that can help to remember important information.
There are several techniques in order to help you remember things but they are very long winded, but work really well if your willing to put the small amount of work into it!!
I wont go into those techniques now, i have to hunt around for the book which contains that information, but when i do i will take you through it!
