How do I learn quotes for my exam?

It's important to identify the general themes in the texts you are studying. Once you've pulled out the themes, then begin to look for quotes that back up that theme, relate to the theme. Don't rehearse extensive passages, but short lines that you fully understand and can explain or paraphrase. If you can't remember the direct quote, you will not be penalised for paraphrasing. 

Once you have your themes and quotes, make mind maps connecting them all. For example, write down the theme of "death" and surround it with a minimum of six quotes that illustrate that theme in the text.
