I found educationalist Jamie Thom on Twitter a few weeks ago. I was actually searching for helpful hints about how to revise for exams – I can’t remember the exact route by which I found Jamie, but I immediately recognised this as a book I had to read:-
Thom, Jamie, Slow Teaching: on Finding Calm, Clarity and Impact in the Classroom (2018)
It’s £15 on Amazon, where you can “look inside” the book, and sure enough, there’s a chapter on revision. But the whole book is worth a look. It’s written from the stance of secondary education, whereas I’m working in higher education, but good pedagogy is good pedagogy, and there is much to benefit from for anyone involved in teaching. The author had a fairly rapid rise into school management, experienced burnout, and is now a classroom teacher in the North of England. Novice teachers will find plenty of advice about how to avoid overdoing things and setting impossible targets for oneself!

UPDATE: I wrote a mini-review for Times Higher Education, and it appeared in the issue for 16 May 2019. You can read it here: you don’t have to be a subscriber to access this link, but you may need to register for your three free articles a week.
