For lists you can use the 'path' method. Imagine a path you use regularly and know well - the rooms in your house or landmarks on your way to school. Then associate each item on the list with each point on the 'path'. For example, if you need to learn the list 'red,orange, yellow, blue' and you use the rooms in your house you might use red for the hall because there is a red coat hanging in there, orange for the kitchen because the fruit bowl has oranges in it etc.
I also make flash cards on GR and print them off - they open up and then I copy out the important notes relating to that card into the middle.
Hope that helps

What I do is write my notes in bullet points then highlight them according to how diffifcult i find each piece of information (red - hard, yellow - medium, green - easy) then when i go to re-read my notes when i come to the red and yellow phrases i try and remember them from off the top of my head and write them on a seperate piece of paper. Then i look back to my notes and any thing i've forgotten i re write and highlight then try and remember them again and keep going till i've remembered them all :) hope this helps
