Check out this Website particularly the Revision techniques.
The most important point it makes is that the worst possible way to revise is just to read
over the notes again and again. Change and adapt the material so it means something to
you, such as summarising or creating your own diagrams.
Good luck (luck comes to those who dare to create it)!
