    Yup. Let me explain you my problem in detail. I am a international student from India, I did my BA in History from a Indian University. Planning to come to UK for my Masters this year. I have a offer from Edinburgh- MSc. History. However, I am worried of that since the course structure, modules and books taught at Indian and UK Universities are different, I might fall short of accademic preparedness when I start my studies, So, I want to know to what books you have been referred by your professors for Modern History modules (if you had opted any) during your undergraduate days. So that I prepare myself well before I come to UK ( in case you don't mind suggesting me some books)

    "Modern History".... I mean, thats an unbelievably broad topic. I can't say I ever got recommended a 'Modern History' book. I was given recommendations for different topics, e.g Stalins Russia, America in the 20th Century, Weimar Germany.

    Thank you so much. I hope you understand my situation. Can you also recommend me books for Historical Research Methods/ Dissertation. This is one area in which Indian university syllabuses give scant attention.

    For my A level revision I wrote out lots of essay plans.

    There should be a lot of past papers available for you to look at, with past essay questions on, correct? You will notice that similar questions come up time and time again, or at least they did for me. I would just write out the essay plans for these, read them, and then rewrite them a couple of times whilst looking at the plans. Finally I would try to write them without looking. I found that in the actual exam I was able to remember a lot more information once I got little bits down, it acted as sort of a trigger. I even used this at University.
