    I find world cities and development straight forward, you just need to know case studies. The physical options are difficult- you need to know the theory as well. Weather and climate is the worse for that- but its made all good if you know your case studies. I'm using:

    MEDC Volcano- Mt St Helens, 57 dead
    LEDC Volcano- Mt Nyiragongo, 147 dead

    MEDC Earthquake- Christchurch 2011 (This is made easier because of the fact that it's the pre-released material)
    LEDC Earthquake- Haiti, over 270,000 dead.

    Tsunami- Indonesia 2004.


    Temperate storm: Great Storm UK 1987
    MEDC tropical revolving storm: Katrina, 2005
    LEDC TRS, Cyclone Nargis, Burma.
    Urban Heat island- Athens/Beijing
    (I need to learn the climate change reduction stuff!)

    Development:

    NICs- Asian Tigers, China, India
    LEDC- Ethiopia
    Trade Blocs- European Union
    Trade vs Aid- Sudan (great bit in the green revision guide if you have it)
    Sustainable Tourism- Adelmar Hotels, Greece
    Eco Tourism- Napo Region, Ecuador.
    Economy vs Environment- Sarawak
    TNCs Wal-mart/Coca-Cola


    World Cities:

    Urbanisation: Mumbai/Bristol
    Suburbanisation: Surburbiton, London
    Counter-Urbanisation: St. Ives, Cambridgeshire
    Reurbanisation: LOndon Docks/ Bristol docks
    Urban Decline (and regeneration, gentrification etc)- Bristol / Islington
    Retailing- Cabot Circus/ Cribbs Causeway, both Bristol
    Sustainability (both waste and transport etc): Jakarta/Bristol/Manchester.

    You don't need to know every single case study in great depth- for things like world cities etc you will probably only need to reference. You do need to know events in detail though, such as the eruption of Mt St Helens.
