    I'm really hoping for a question on Hoover to come up, what do you think the chances of that are??

    btw; this question for a section B "How far do you agree that america was hit by aN econmic downturn 1929-30" Is it referring to the stock market, banking, lack of regulation, unequal distribution of wealth, high tariffs, farming problems, industrial problems etc?
    I'm not doing the GD so don't know how likely that will be. I would say that that is what the question is referring to.

    I reckon it will be a fact to do with the 1920's boom and the second question on McCarthyism, what are your thoughts ?

    they normally ask one from the beginning of the period and one from the end and considering last years was social tensions and effects of ww2, we might be in luck

    Plus after social tensions they do usually go for economic boom

    I guess Prohibition is still a possibility but that and opposition would be far too nice

    McCarthyism is another possibility

    No denying theres a lot of content. Good thing is strong exam technique helps a lot so keeping organised and a clear argument.

    I got an A last year so hoping to maintain that, yourself?

    I also think social tensions with immigration as the named factor as that hasn't come up since 2010. But then again I can't shake the idea it will be boom because as u said they normally do after social.

    I think McCarthyism will be the second option yeah

    Yeah immigration is another good option


    I got an A last year but would like an A* this year. To get an A* you need 90% in this exam and 80% overall (the A* on the grade boundary doesn't actually mean you'll get an A* overall)
