    Population Change
    Changing Urban Enviornments
    Tourism

    All of it is case study information compared to Physical Geography where its facts and processes which need to be learnt! Full focus on Physical for tommorow however going over case studies.

    Population- China's One Child Policy- Why they do it? How effective? Consequences? also Kerela, India population control. Ageing population in France also

    Urban Enviornments- Looking at squatter settlements in India, Sao Paulo, Rio. Looking at Problems and solutions in Los Angeles (MEDC) and LEDC is Cairo. and a Sustainable settlement is Masdar in the UAE

    Tourism- Lake District National Park, Blackpool coastal resort, Eco Tourism and Mass Tourism- Kenya. Extreme Enviornments- Antarctica

    CGP guide is so good for Geography, I would be lost without it! I am doing Development Gap, Population Change and Tourism.

    The good thing about Human geography is if you forget the effects or strategies you can still get marks by using common sense e.g. everyone knows the affects tourism are littering, traffic, better economy and damage to buildings for example, wheras in physical you have to know solid facts. (like how many people died in what Earthquake, when, why, how etc.)

    That's pretty much exactly what we've done this year. I'm pretty confident with the facts, just need to go over the case studies in detail.

    I am doing the following topics:-

    Tourism
    Population Change
    The Development Gap

    Tourism is the easiest for the case studies as you can simply make them up about any country!

    Has anyone else got three exams on the same day as I have german and statistics on the afternoon of this exam day???
    It seems a bit crazy :eek:
