20 tips that can help you revise 15 hours of study material in 1 hour!

What if we told you that the key to perfecting your writing was all in how you revise it? And what’s more, everyone has their own revision process. That means figuring out which one is right for YOU and sticking with it! Sticking to a consistent revision schedule will ultimately make sure everything comes together seamlessly without missing any important concepts or forgetting about earlier ideas.

Course materials are often dense and difficult to read. But, revision can be straightforward when you know the right steps! Check out these 20 tips for effective course material revision from our team of experts at Filo: 

– Assign a due date to your revisions and stick to it, even if you feel like skipping out on them. It’s important that revisions happen in the right order so as not to forget about previous concepts along the way. Assigning a due date helps you stay on track.

– Make note cards that list any revisions that need completing. On your notecards, write what needs to be done and then check off each card as you do it. You should be able to complete ten cards per day easily; try breaking up larger tasks into smaller ones to keep up the momentum. Get creative with how you revise! Some people like organizing their notes by topic and others prefer using tabs for different concepts; either way, this is one of those things that are best done in whatever order works best for YOU.

Go through all of your notes once before starting any big changes or additions and get an idea of what needs improvement and where we need more work. This will also help avoid unnecessary time spent trying to find stuff later during exams because these thoughts may come back when reviewing old information. (Don’t worry; this is much easier than it sounds!)

Stay focused! If you’re studying with someone else, take turns summarizing. If you’re studying on your own, take a break from time to time and get some fresh air or go for a walk. It’s important that when we revise course material, we are mentally refreshed and able to concentrate so our revisions will be more effective.

Be open-minded! If there is something in the text which doesn’t make sense, don’t just blindly keep going; instead, identify what it is about this statement that confuses you or makes no logical sense. This way of approaching things will ensure that each revision question has been addressed individually rather than glossed over because they were confused by an unrelated idea.

Come up with your own revision schedule! The best way to figure out what works for you is by trying different methods and analyzing which ones work better. There’s no point in struggling through revisions when there are so many effective strategies that can make the process a lot easier!

Get feedback on your drafts as soon as possible. Feedback from peers, teachers or tutors will help improve writing skills and ensure that everything makes sense before turning it in. Our Filo app provides free and instant access to an online network of certified tutors from various fields who are available round the clock for your doubts. Remember: consistency is key, so get into a rhythm and stick to it—you’ll be glad you did at exam time (and every other day!)

Do not try to remember everything at once–try focusing on one thing at a time before moving on. If you’re studying with someone else, it’s important to designate one person as the “recorder” and have them go through everything before writing anything down. This will help avoid any confusion or forgetting what was said in an earlier conversation about revisions.

Be mindful of your revision process! The more you revise course materials, the better they’ll get–so don’t stop at just a few hours; keep going until you’ve finished all that is required for the particular exam coming up.

Study smarter not harder by being strategic about when and where you do your work. For example, if we know there are some topics on our final exams which require much more time than others (e.g., reading comprehension), then begin those sections first, and then revisit the easier ones later. This will not only help us avoid burnout but also finish much faster!

Don’t wait until the last minute! – Self-explanatory right?

Make a list of things to do for those moments when you feel like giving up. This can be anything from taking time out, doing something relaxing or studying in a different place that feels more conducive to study–whatever it is that works best for you and your needs.

Collaborate with classmates: exchanging ideas about what worked well while revising course material will help identify strategies that are most effective for each person’s learning style and may even provide new ways of approaching revision questions we haven’t thought of before!

Be patient with your revision process: it’s important to review all course material in order by date of creation or last modification (i.e., newest first) rather than simply going over what we find easy or liked most–revision is about challenging ourselves so that we’re better prepared for challenges ahead. 

Remember that there are no stupid questions: if you’re unsure about something, don’t be afraid to ask your professor or tutor. It’s worth the time and effort because it can save us from forgetting an important concept in our course material which could result in a lower grade on exams. Our Filo app provides free and instant access to an online network of certified tutors from various fields who are available round the clock. Students simply need to log in using their phone numbers and instantly connect with a live tutor! They can then ask questions about any topic that’s bothering them right away – no more waiting or scheduling time-consuming appointments!

By downloading this mobile app you will be able to solve your doubts anytime anywhere without having to take leave from your work or school hours. It’s completely free too! And we’re adding new subjects every day so keep checking back on our app store page regularly for updates 🙂

Be strategic with how we spend our revision time! Try taking advantage of short breaks (e.g., watching TV) by reviewing study notes during these times so as not to waste any valuable hours of studying; this way, when exams do come around, we know everything–rather than feeling nervous or unprepared for what may come next.

Be creative! If we struggle with a particular subject, think of ways to make that material more interesting and less challenging. For example, if memorization is the issue–try using mnemonics or creating flashcards; this will not only help keep us interested but also provide an easy way for remembering what’s important in our course materials.

Stay organized: when revising course materials it’s important to always have one place where everything can be found easily (e.g., on your computer) so as not to waste time searching for things that are necessary during exam preparation.

Note: It would be helpful to include some final reminders about how effective these methods may be compared to others as well as any cautions associated with these methods in the conclusion.

Put your revisions in a binder and label them by the exam date. This will help you stay organized, while also ensuring that nothing is missed or forgotten about until it’s too late to revise so everything can be done ahead of time!

Remember these tips on revisions as a sort of checklist when reviewing course material before exams; this should make things less overwhelming and more manageable. After all, revision takes time – don’t try to do everything at once! Stay focused, stay organized, and have fun getting those notes ready for exams!
