Revision time is again upon us. I thought i'd share with you some revision tips I have found useful these last two years doing a law degree
1) One of my lecturers this year told us that the key to doing well in a law exam was "Cases, Cases,Cases". Reading is useful, but it isn't a very efficient way of revising. Try making a list of all the cases and order them by topic. Next to each case, write the principle and keep it down to one line so you can scan through them quickly.
2) The second useful tip is that not all cases are equal. Try to identify the most important cases and focus on those, making sure you know the facts. For the less important cases (usually obvious by how much attention has been paid to them in lectures or in the book), simply knowing the principle is enough.
3) Read through your tutorial notes. This is perhaps the most useful tip. Tutorials are essentailly walkthroughs of how to answer an exam question and are often predictors of what is examinable, so make sure you know them inside out.
4) Past Papers. Once you know the tutorial notes, move onto exam papers to develop your technique and to test your knowledge.
5) Finally, stay concentrated! Facebook can wait until after exams.
Best of Luck!
