When i did it I made Summaries of the case studies one per A4 sheet using colour coded mind maps for things like the effects and for the tectonic ones what happened with key dates. Place detail is also important, depending on the exam you may get a few easy marks for a sketch map. Other than that its about just knowing the theory, hopefully learning the case studies will show where you have gaps in your knowledge otherwise go other the your class notes and summerise them in revision notes. Ask your teachers as well, they will know where you struggle and might be able to point you toward a course specific revision guide. Good luck!

I find summarising my notes as James Ellies said, but also working through a chapter in maybe a revision text book. The one that i use that is good is called 'GCSE Revison Guide Geography' and its by 'Jane Ferretti and Brian Greasley'. Also answering questions on the topic that you have just revised is also a good way how to do remember things.
I also love using post it notes, i colour coordinate a topic meaning i know which is which. Highlighters and coloured pens are also good ways on how to coordinate your notes.
Good luck and just put in the effort to revise!

use alot of spider diagrams for each topic if your a visual learner write your notes out all of times so its stick or have study sessions with your group so you can disscus the question before writing them down and another thing is do loads of exam practice and have model answers for the essays questions and dont forget to write like a geographer and use all the fancy words it will get you more marks
good luck dont get too stressed out

it depends how you best revise in general but for me i made bullet point notes about all the theory for each topic and case studies but for case studies i also made A4 summary sheets for each topic and detailed mind maps for each case study too. when you learn the satistics for eachcase study don't worry if you can't remember the exact number, round it up to something easier or you can even make it up if you can't remember just as long as it sounds realistic. also buy a revision guide it helps summarise the theory and case studies and i found them really useful, they are really cheap on amazon. if you are doing aqa then here's a link to a really good revision guide my teacher recommened to me, second hand its only 1p! http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/1906415692/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used
also do loads of past paper questions, i made sure i did some each weekend, and either mark them yourself or ask your teacher to mark them and go through them with you
hope this helps, message me if you need anything more
