The most efficient way to remember things is to turn them into mind maps. With Mindmaps you will be able to jot down notes on a single A4 size paper.
Once you’ve made the mindmap of the lecture, you can then put it in your room as a constant reminder for the future.
One benefit you’ll get is, you can never forget the lecture when it is in front of your eyes. Secondly, you have an art that can act as a decoration piece for your room.

Let’s face it, review can be quite lonely and sometimes it’s a really good idea to have your friends around you while you review.
If for example, you can’t remember how your teacher explained a specific concept, you can ask one of your friends to go over it for you. It seems sometimes, our friends can put ideas in more memorable concepts than our teachers. One warning though. Do not take these group studies as a medium to catch up with your friends. You have a purpose to review, and group study can accelerate the learning process.
Alongside these tips for reviewing anything, remember that taking regular breaks can also aid you in reviewing faster. After 45 minutes of study, take a break for 5-10 minutes. And in those 10 minutes, do something that is diffident then your study.
