Hi i do history too, wjec board and currently do Depression, war, recovery of Great Britain. I also do Hitler's germany. What i do is, rewrite the whole course in short notes,
but include every single important info, such as

dates (day/month/year is better but year is sufficient)
name of the laws/acts/armistice, name of people (surname is enough),
what happened,
why it happened
and its conclusion and evaluation (effective? successful? however... etc)

And once i done the notes, i read them over and over again, but it's boring to just read it for what it is, i read it like a story...in a creative manner (because hitler invaded poland, the allies waged war cos they were having none of his sh** finally, after ingoring so many invasions like rhineland or austria)

I did basically the same topics and all I can say is keep revising until you walk into that exam hall. I remember literally everyone of us had our history books in our hands and were questioning each other the morning of the exam until we went in. Maybe get a friend to revise with?

Are you doing CIE? I'm covering most of those topics as well. I find the best thing do to is to write loads of notes, learn them, try and condense them. But make sure you understand the general order of events in history (timelines are good), otherwise things will seem out of place and you won't remember the details. Also make sure you are aware of all the points on your board's specification,

Also I found some good podcasts on iTunes that go over most of those topics really clearly.

And read the mark schemes so you understand the correct way to answer the question...

Good luck!
