Brightly coloured posters are good for revision. Also, if you are making bullet points about something when making notes then I find that using numbers is better because you're more likely to remember how many points you made about something :) Hope these help

Mind Mapping an entire subject is the best way to start. Try doing it from memory at first then use other sources to make sure it covers everything. You can even use different colours for different area's to help you tell them apart. Once you've done your posters, you could try flash cards or test papers. It really depends what type of learner you are but doing past papers usually shows me what I need to work on, so they're helpful to check your progress. Hope this helped :)

For me, I tend to talk loud to myself and explain the work without looking at notes to imaginary class, that way I can identify gaps in my knowledge.

(It really depends what type of learner you are..) Yes. you may be better off listening or watching videos and may be even colourful posters.

past papers are the best ways of knowing how the examiners test your intellect and layout of the questions. 

Practice makes perfect! don't just read maths, practice it! then you'll be very surprised at how far you are!

hope that helped!!!
