By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

How do you revise for exams?

GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands ModeratorPosts: 5,327 mod
We are all either sitting exams at the moment, or will have had to sit them in the past - but how do you revise?

Personally, I would make notes on all of the topics, read through them, and then try to re-write them in various ways. That seemed to work very well indeed for me.

I know other people who like to record themselves speaking the notes and then listening back to them.

What about you? What is the best way for you to revise?

    What revise? :o
    I study before the night of the exam and it eliminates the headache of revision and then the best creativity and some of the new types of approach towards the problems can be seen on an answer sheet. Its makes studies more adventurous and also I don't feel like getting disturbed with anything while studying a night before the exam. It makes brain efficient to handle pressure and train brain to handle pressure and work efficiently under great pressure. :D

    P.S. : of course I am kidding, it will be a disaster in exams if anybody tries the above method. ;)

    I know of a lot of people who genuinely do simply read over all of their notes the night before, and that is enough to allow them to pass the exam. I am very jealous of people who are so talented with their memory.
