Alright then, when I did my mock exam last year I did not gain any marks for learning the dates and the magnitude of the Richter Scale etc, but simply for stating the case study (name of volcano/earthquake/tsunami/whatever it was) and the rest of the marks went to thhe primary impacts, secondary impacts, immediate responses and long-term responses.

Now I'm wondering, should I bother learning the dates etc again because last time it was a complete waste of time.

What do you have to remember case studies for?
Like, a case study for a LEDC and MEDC earthquake, another case study for a LEDC and MEDC hurricane for example.
Could someone post a list of case studies to remember please because im really confused. Thanks.

Case studies for tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, flooding, and I think how glaciers attract tourism.

Bearing in mind I'm doing The Restless Earth, Water On The Land and Ice On The Land.

If you just use your common sense then you can make up figures, just estimate the number of deaths if it is a disaster.
