    AH nice to know someone doing this and unit 4! I still havent finished unit 4 notes, it is such a big topic! I don't think unit 1 looks too bad, hopefully it'll be okay

    I am, and revision hasn't been going too badly. Can someone give me some ideas of the things I must know, and which Sociologists I must know?

    something about death rates came up in june 2010 - was awful
    but can't remember the other one

    any predictions for this year?
    i'm thinking childhood as it hasn't come up and hopefully something like Marxism/functionalism in the family

    I'm also doing the Unit 4 exam as well as Unit 1.

    How are you finding it?

    What is, according to you, is the best way to revise sociology?
    I find it really difficult to memorise all the things... especially with Unit 4 as well.

    Been really looking at the notes my teacher has been giving me (actually got more family notes from my education in sociology teacher than my family teacher, he has been covering both topics to cove lack of notes from other teacher, who prefers to just talk for 50 minutes)
