    I would recommend you try making flash cards, and revising with a friend so you can test each other. If that doesn't work you should try all sorts of revision techniques such as recording and listening to your voice or making colorful mind maps. As this will probably help you find what works for you, and you may discover your a visual learner etc.

    Get 14 different coloured pens or use 7 different pens twice per topic and make a list of the scholars for each topic and in the opposite column write what they said:

    e.g. for George Murdoch: Four key functions to the family including economic functions and socialisation

    FAMILY;
    - Couples
    - Childhood
    - Family functions
    - Demography
    - Changing family patterns
    - Diversity
    - Policy

    EDUCATION;
    - External
    - Internal
    - Ethnicity
    - Gender
    - Functionalism
    - Marxism
    - Policy


    THEN, once you have your list make a flashcard for the name and another for what they said and make it a matching up exercise that you do daily. That way you are thinking who said what and piecing it all together to learn the information. If you need a full list of scholars and what they said for both family and education, direct mail me your email and I can email them over.

    Hope that helps and best of luck!
