Put the pile of revision cards for each section of material on the table in front of you. Put your ‘last minute’ cards for each section to one side – you will only need these just before each exam. Some piles will be larger than others, depending on how much you knew already and how much time you have been able to spend reducing each set of cards, but that is no problem. Take the first pile, glance at the title of each card and try reciting what you think is on that card. You are unlikely ever to be perfect at this, and there is no need to be. If you have found another way to test yourself that suits your learning style better, then you will use that method. If you feel you know nearly all of the material on the card, put it on one pile; if you feel much less confident about the contents of the card, put it on another pile. There will probably be a third pile here, too – the cards that you now think are not really essential because they contain material that you do not realistically expect to use in the exam. These are not wasted cards: by making them you have ensured that you know some of the material, enough to refer to it in passing if you need to.
