To be honest, I would be laughing at myself. I can't help but crack up on video or even tape for that matter, but watching myself is even more hilarious. I would get no work done.
What works for me is rewriting the terms over and over again, then reading them, then rewriting them. You should see how many notebooks I go through, and they all have the same things written over and over. It really
works for me though. I have gotten essay questions ahead of time on a test (the prof. gave them to us, I didn't go looking for them!) and I actually memorized essays by doing this. This does not work for everyone though, because as everyone else has already stated, everyone has very different learning styles. Good luck and I hope you find something that works for you!
