One way I can suggest is that you revise by solving questions using any proper(like bpp, kaplan) revision kit.
First write your own answer, then check the answer from the kit. I know the answers are really long but check if you have covered 10 points(for 10 mark question) or not, which is enough. The good thing about this approach is that the points you have missed/forgotten, will be remebered next time.
Group study is really effective before exams. You can share the knowledge and the gaps.
Before applying a study method, you should know what exactly you will be facing in the exam. Mind you, the revision kit is helpful but you will not do the revision kit in the exam. It is the specimen December 2014 exam which you all must thoroughly understand each section of it. Section A is 45 MCQs which contain 25 MCQs of 2 marks each and 20 MCQs of 1 mark each, Section B contains 5 Questions worth 6 marks each but however, each question in section B is apportioned in 3 questions which will require 2 to 3 lines worth of answers and specifically they are called short essay questions thus there is not too much to write, this is something in our favor unlike the previous exams where we had to write long essays. Be careful, in this very exam you will be concerned with the width of the syllabus not the depth of it. "how much can you cover but not how will you cover it", for MCQs, apparently we have no other choice but to master them by covering as much as the syllabus allows but we can take more advantage from section B as it is just very short essay answers that concerns an asnwer of short explanations and one more mark if necessary to give the case example i.e "Carlill V Carbolic Smoke Ball Co." therefore the method I am going to prescribe to you will definitely work for you if you can not memorize the whole syllabus.
1) Download the specimen paper December 2014 and look at the way they have given you the Section B, You must take advantage as it has become much easier now with short essay answering and unlike MCQs you are not forced to choose an answer here.
2) MCQs can be mastered by covering "most" of the syllabus, revision kit can only help you practice but you should rather cover most of the syllabus by reading and understanding it thus you will have a better understanding at MCQs.
3) A study method to be precisely according to achieve success in this version of exam is to read as much as you can understand, memorizing would help if they were long answers required for the questions.
One more thing, I am not suggesting these ideas from some YouTube ACCA organisation videos. These are my personal suggestions and I would like you to have a look at them and think about what I have just put in front of you if it is sensible and appealing enough.
