I'm not sure how to revise for Of Mice and Men. I've read the book yet I still don't feel prepared.

go through the quotations highlight them then write them out, expand on them saying what they mean and their relevance for them in the book (:

I always find that discussing ideas about themes/characters/structure etc. with other people studying the book helps, you can share your ideas and lets face it, its more fun than revising on your own :L

For the book I'm studying I got a revision guide to read through and have done essay plans of past paper questions (which you can find on the AQA websites.) Find quotes for each character/theme and make sure you can analysise them and offer your own original personal response. Good luck :)

I've gone through the book and highlighted any quotes I like and annotated them as to what my thinking behind them is. Maybe pick out key quotes that link to the themes because, no matter the question, you can always talk about how themes are explored and it's great to have a whole set of quotes that just roll off the tongue, so to speak, in order to back up your points. I've got a powerpoint on them if you want to check it out.

As the other people have said, maybe a revision guide would be good but it could be a little late for that as the exam's on tuesday. Some of the resources on here are gold so just check them out. If you have a chance, look at some of the past questions, plan an answer, then check out the mark scheme to see just what the examiner is looking for. You don't necessarily even have to write the essay, as long as you know what you'd put it. :)

Good luck! <3
