My methods are simple, but sweet. I use a method known as chunking for everything but math. chunking is when you take one term or idea and add it to a similar idea, this in turn will help you remember certain formulas, terminology and certain facts.

Repetition, it's all about increasing and maintain the connections you make in your brain when you learn something, the more variety of repetition the better because you have more "places" to retrieve what you have learned.
So I use visual, read the material several times, write it, summarize it, and repeat what I have learned out loud. And I always try to do a quick review 2 hours after I have learned something, then 6 hours after>Next day>3 days later>week and a half later>3 months>year.
So far it works for me perfectly.

i basically do the same thing mauz does except the part about "repeat what I have learned out loud."

^^^ Yeah, I agree. Reviewing the material in different ways over a period of time is my basic method of study. Also, for maths and other subjects with problems, solving lots and lots of different types of problems.

I do mindmapping and also chunking.

For maths, I do lots of practise with past exam papers that can be found in the library.

pretty much I would just study the things I don't get untill I get it, then I would review the whole chapter or section for the test/quiz... then I would usually go over my notes, review questions, diagrams, vocab, etc... and make sure I have a good night's sleep.

I'm not really a fan of studying, so I tend to avoid it, but on the occasions I do study I find these to be the most useful ways to learn things: repeat things out loud, write things over and over and over, diagram/draw, find connections and triggers to make it easier to remember things, and discuss topics with other people.

Repetition seems to be very effective for me... but so annoying... sometimes after I quit studying and go to sleep it continues into my dreams. ;_;

^ I can't count the nuber of times I've had dreams about the subjects I study... o_o Or woken up to thinking about something I was having trouble understanding and going "Eureka! ..It all makes sense now!"

I'm not big on studying, either, but sometimes I find that I really should, I just look over all of my notes, review the sections/lessons in the textbook, repeat things over and over in my head, write things down, etc...
Then I think about what they might ask us and then try to make sure I'm ready for that. :3
I also try to look at the material a little bit at each part of the day before the test or something...like if it's the next day, I'll study furiously that night, look over it that morning, then in first period, second period, you get the gist. XD

I feel your pain dreaming about oxidations, titrations and thermodynamic problems is not the best thing in the world
