It works when learning lines and I'm sure could work for learning revision facts but at the end of the day you will just be learning the words, not the facts themselves so if you're required to relate something to it you won't have any idea becasue you've only memorised a quote. Studies show that 80% of the time you are only learning and taking in new information when writing. My advice would be to make colourful posters and lots of revision notes so then you will have the visual memory aswell :)

yes this is great for remembering key word but to remeber paragraphs and whole topics i would reccomend creating flashcards and stick them on your wall or wardrobe and before you go to sleep read them and when you wake up read them. really useful!! and even if u try not to read them they will be right there so u will read them and automatically remember them

that is a good way but better would be too put the words onto flash cards and stick them in your bedroom .  don't try to revise them. with them their you will see them constantly and they will automatically remain in your head

yes flash cards, mind maps anything that allows you to stop being easily bored, testing your friends is also a fun esay way to do it as you are both learning and you can share revision techniques at the same time

Yes alternatively you could make flip cards so you look at one side try and remember the answer and then find it out on the other side. This is particular good to do with your friends as you could make it into a game of who gets the answer first. It's also something you can rope your family in with as they can test you on it quite easily.
