    review x revision

    Are review and revision synonyms? When a teacher goes over all the subjects that will be on a test, is it called a (general/final) review or revision?

    Re: review x revision

    The teacher had reviewed the student's homework and then made some revisions to it.

    Re: review x revision

    I'll try to point out the main differences, but maybe some native speakers could do it better.

    REVIEW
    - the state of going through something, with the intention of changing it if necessary
    - kind of a report in a newspaper in which somebody gives their opinion of something (movie, book...)

    REVISION
    - a state of making a change to something
    - the process of preparing for an exam
