    Earlier this year, I studied for a diploma through Learning People and my most effective method for exam preparation was to transcribe my notes to flash cards and read through them for an hour every day, for the two weeks leading up to my exam. I also went back through project work I'd completed on the course, so that in my head I was referring back to experiences and not just theories. Did the trick for me!

    I'm one of those strange people who remember best by writing / typing what info I am trying to learn. Flash cards are good, but unless I write down my answer (instead of just say it) it seems to float out of my head!

    For exams that provide you with exam objectives (like comptia do) I fire up onenote, set a tab for each objective, then take notes on each and every bullet point / topic. The first look over, notes are simply what I already know or think the answer is. Second time around I fire up google/books/YouTube etc and put in better more detailed into. Then review that and add more.
