    This is question seems pretty broad. Is it on topic?

  • Is there some particular aspect that you are asking about? E.g. "should one prioritize studying old material over new material", "how many times should one review something" "when in the day should one review" "something else"? What exactly is being asked?

Rav Elyashiv reportedly said the proper way to review is:

The primary review which brings benefit is review whereby one learns the matter again anew (od paam mechadash es hainyan). This takes alot of time, though it is quicker than the first time, but it takes time. But the toeles (benefit) is davka (specifically) from reviews like this"

    @Yehoshua it means not to review like a parrot but to learn it anew as if you never learned it before
