    For the indepth bit, mine was American West for reference, I made a massive timeline out of post it notes and stuck it on my wall so I could glance up at it every so often, then I'd get my sister to take some down and test myself that way. I did similar for the development over time (Medicine) but arranged it differently, so I had a section with a heading for a time period then everything I needed to know in date order underneath each, colour coded for factors. My teacher used to do quizzes at the start of each lesson too, about 15 questions like 'who invented the NHS?' and 'what year did xxx happen?' but we might be doing a lesson on homesteaders and she'd ask us a medicine question to make sure we hadn't forgotten it all. I got an A* overall.

    I did that exam and got 100%
    I would recommend that you know all the content to a certain degree of depth.
    Analyse the mark schemes, there's material on the student synopsis of the mark scheme, so you can ensure you include all the content. Upon having your point, back it up with evidence from the time and the effect that this has/had and to what extent etc. depending on the context of the question. This works for most questions, and ensure you include judgement for the exam. It doesn't matter whether your perspective is right or not in terms of your judgement, it's how you support your answers (quotes and evidence from that time), and explain the statuary effect it had (etc. therefore illustrating media distribution effectively influenced the raised awareness concerning domestic violence etc.)
    Your writing style should be cohesive, and flow, and give a comprehensive outlook on things, look at the marks for questions and time management as with all essay writing exams is essential.
    I hope that helped and PM me if you have any more queries
