THe Best Ways to Revise Board Drawing Topics
Revision is a key part of every Leaving Certificate subject but often there is not much thought put into how you should do it. Revision technique is key in DCG because if you just do question after question from start to finish you are wasting a lot of time. A simpler way of putting this would be to ask the question, "Would you rather spend 35-60 mins doing a single past exam question or spend the same amount of time revising 3-4 concepts?
Revision vs Engagement
A lot of people spend hours upon hours "revising" without really engaging in any subject matter at all. What I mean by this is that if you sit and look at a notes page, past question or worse someone else's solution to a question with nothing but your eyes you are not revising properly and won't remember much of what you looked at. While revising you need to engage with the topics/concepts which means that you should always be drawing, sketching, annotating, highlighting, etc. You didn't learn the concepts by only looking at the notes in your book, why would you revise like that?
Always be active when revising, never passive!
