i find writing them out to be really helpful, and then getting someone to test me on them. finding associations between the reasearcher & the finding of the study are also helpful ie i have to know a study by Segrin & its about how people who are depressed withdraw from social interaction. S = sad, sad is a synoym for depressed & that helps me remember the study!

I normally make flashcards on Quizlet.com with the study on one side and the person who did it on the other because it's a really good way to test yourself (i used to get my bro to test me but he got bored too easily or would insist on crazy charades games if i couldn't get an answer).There's other flashcard websites i've used in the past that I find quizlet the best because a) you can overide a wrong answer if you just made a typo and b) after you've been through once you can just go back to the ones you got wrong and test yourself on those.

After i'm getting nearly 100% everytime i go through the topics on the spec and write down all the studies on it I can think of on a mindmap.

I also find myself using crazy techniques to try and link the name to the study, for the Segrin one mentioned above i always think "these depressed people SurE aren't GRINning" it's crazy how many names are actually really appropriate! Also my friends and family members might be a little offended if only they knew how often that make part of my associations.

i agree with ep rewriting them is the best way especially see as that is what you will be doing in the exam if that topic comes up sometimes I believe the internet can be to distracting like the 56 sage street game on a revision website is not the best thing
