Just reading the textbook does not help much try doing some tests to see if you understand and pratise past paper questions. Its is important to understand what you are reading because in the exam if a question came about an application of knowledge question you will have no problem if you understand a concept.
Often getting someone to test you on the notes you made, makes it sink in and allows more confidence, if reading doesn't work, try watching/making videos on the topic or post it notes and diagrams - even labelling pictures sometimes helps! :D
If you struggle to revise, like me for instance as i have my GCSE exams on may the 2nd and i have in total 12 exams, go over all the tasks you have done in class per subject and listen to music to keep you motivated. After about 1 hour take a 15-30 mionute break to refresh your mind, maybe have a snack or even watch a bit of T.V. Oh yeah and keep away from facebook!!!
