Geography Revision - the "Life Cloud

Timetable Geography Best Way to Approach? Make your revision goal orientated. Rather than setting 1 hour of revision, take a section of the specification i.e. shield volcanoes. If it takes an hour, so be it, if it 20 minsbonus! ALWAYS stop revising at 9pm. Relax and let your brain have a rest! Devise a system where you revise and then on two later dates (the following week and the following month), see if you can recall the information. Start with physical geography first! Restless Earth, Coastal Zone and Rocks, Resources and Scenery When Should I Start Revising? The sooner the better. Short sharp bits of revision in the first instance and then scale up as you get closer. Month Revision Goals Recall Sessions Jan 3 x topic areas per week (physical) 1 the following week and 1 the following month Feb 4 x topic areas per week (physical)
