    Yeah no one seems to like the red textbook; it's not the best one. You gotta deal with it though our school also requires us to borrow these smaller collins books -- I did all my revision from them last year! This year even that book is quite crap. Upsetting haha. But I guess you can't always be spoon fed
    Are you talking about the Hodder White book?

    That one is too brief and doesn't give enough detail to some parts :/

    All the books are crappy 😢

    I have the hodder White book too, but I mean a different one. The white book is quite good at giving you the brief idea of what you need to know -- the layout is usually very nice. I like to refer to it if I can't figure out the factors as fast as I'd like to or something

    Make sure you're confident with writing though. Making plans is great but a guy I know did that last year and messed up in the exam because he ONLY did plan. When it came to writing an essay he wasn't able to make it flow and stuff.

    Hope revision is going well :3
    That's very true and yeah it's going okay I guess aha how's yours??

    Meeeehhhhh!

    It's really unproductive. I've been sat here since 6 and I've only done like 1/4 of the WW1 controversy. And I don't even know it.

    Hmm.

    The A* is beginning to fade away from my grasp

    I was thinking the same, but what ways could German rev be worded?

    "The German revolution 1918-1919 brought remarkably little change to Germany." How far do you agree?

    "The German revolution was a revolution from below." How far do yo agree?

    Idk if that would come up though. It seems a bit weird - like not something that people would even think of.

    It could though, but it's a weird question xD

    I certainly wouldn't choose it as my essay, but it's perfectly possible as its in the course textbook and hasn't been used, much like:

    "Terror and violence were key to Nazi consolidation". How far do you agree?

    "The Nazis were a minor irritant before the Wall Street Crash". How far do you agree?

    Yup. They could ask any question like that. Questions like the revolution etc are the ones you don't do - unless you have to xD

    Although I do like the second question that the 'Nazis were a minor irritant before Wall Street Crash.'

    I'm praying for consolidation.

    How would you plan the Nazi one?

    We already planned it together didn't we? I wrote up a detailed plan of it when you first came up with the question

    Oh I see. I couldn't remember who responded to that question.

    I suppose my line of argument would "no, but they were certainly having little impact at the ballot box".

    Yeah something like that.

    By the way, my teacher said that you can, and should, to demonstrate a high level understanding, put things like the Enabling act in one paragraph only. So like you can say that it was democratic but then disagree with it in the same paragraph and say it came about by violence.

    Most people don't do this because they might confuse themselves but my teacher said I should do it so you should probably do it too.

    So like instead of separating the enabling act in two factors you consider it in one factor but then oppose it.

    Lol. That is the opposite of what my teacher said today when handing back our mocks.
