    What is the best way to revise for A2 sociology if you want an A?
    I just make notes and learn them but i know that's not good enough if you want to get an A.

    I'd say that's a very good one, as often you can get the latest developments of policies or statistics that aren't in the textbook. Last year our sociology teacher did it for us, new ones this year and i'll probably do it for my self when it gets closer to the time.

    It's enough. A levels only require you to learn the syllabus so as long as you've got a decent textbook and you learn it well, you can get an A.

    Decent detailed text book - make notes and keep reading.
    Then a simpler book to read to refresh your memory.

    I think having a good essay structer is always good, I think like 60% of my paper tomorrow is based of "evaluation"

    I find using a flash card app on my phone really helpful in remembering theorists. The app was called ankidroid, it basically saved my ass in AS!
