I would go over all my notes from the term in succession, rather than breaking them up into smaller units for study. I'd go over them all many times until I felt confident I retained it all. If I found one specific area was giving me trouble only then would I go over that material apart from the rest.
Why repeat the info? I see people do this a lot and I'm like that's stupid. What is that doing? When it comes to studying, what I do is either watch a video explaining it so I can get a better understanding or go on to various websites to get an explanation. Then, I'll write the word down and define it. THIS is way more efficient and better than just repeating info.
