Mind mapping
Mind mapping can be a useful technique for revision. Mind maps use colours, lines and pictures to link ideas, providing a good visual aid for your memory. An illustration of a mind map is shown below.

How to mind map 1. 2. 3. Take a blank piece of paper (A4 size or bigger) and turn it sideways so that it is in landscape orientation. Start in the centre and write or draw your central theme. Draw branches spreading out from the centre of your mind map to show the key themes (like the chapters in a book) and write along the branches. Use different colours for the branches to help to make the mind map easier to read. Extend the branches to make sub-branches to show your ideas. Try to make the branches thicker nearer to the central theme, and thinner towards the edge to show the relative importance of your ideas. Use pictures whenever possible as memory prompts, and change the size and style of your lettering to show the importance of the information.
