    Hi mate, I'm also on this course, and the best way I can think of revising is to break it down into time chunks as it is such a wide spanning time range in history. (1865 - 1992? ) Best way to do it for me is to look at what happened in:

    1865 - 1900
    1900 - WW1
    1920s Boom
    1930s Depression/ New Deal
    WW2
    Cold War
    Then the end of the 70s to 1992.


    Hope this helps pal, if not just disregard it all haha!

    Hello all....

    I've got a bit of a problem in my notes.

    I'm perfectly fine on unions (as boring as they are!), women and Native Americans, but when it comes to African Americans my notes are a bit short on how the federal government helped or hindered the civil rights movement.

    This is what I have so far...

    Helped
    • 13th, 14th and 15th Constitution amendments
    • The New Deal
    • Brown v Board of Education 1954
    • 1964 Civil Rights Act
    • 1965 Voting Rights Act


    Hindered
    • President Hayes ended reconstruction in 1877
    • 1899 Cummings v Board of Education


    And that's it Can anyone help me out please? :confused:

    Thanks for any help.

    Yeahh I'm doing this exam
    For revision I'm basically doing essay plans and practice essays for every single past question that has come up (other than repetitions) and hoping that at least one of them recurs. I'm finding it a difficult exam to revise for simply because there's SO much to revise, and then the essay technique is quite nifty as well :/

    I've been trying to do as many practice essays as possible but can't seem to focus or concentrate properly and have only done......one and a half haha.

    I agree - it's so difficult because there's so much to revise for! My brain feels like it's about to explode!

    I've made essay plans and have been doing practise essays. Also I've been reading the text book to brush up on knowledge. Did a practise test and got a B/A on it today.

    The only trouble I will have is the questions, the way they word them.

    Other ways in which they helped: Radical republicanism and Stevens and Sumner in reconstruction period
    1915 Guinn vs US as a result of NAACP campaigning
    1938: Gaines vs Canada
    1941:Roosevelt desegregating federal offices
    1992 Clinton saying he wanted administration to "look like America"
    Hindered:
    1873 Slaugterhouse cases
    1896 Plessy vs Ferguson
    1912 Wilson dismissing all blacks
    1983: Reagan appointed less blacks than any president since Eisenhower.

    Hope that helps
