    What are the best ways to revise for sociology? Finding it hard to remember everything!!!

    For sociology I think being heavily dependent on a text book isn't the best idea. Only if you're doing a past paper question and you feel like you're struggling to think of sociologists then use the text book to help you find theories etc. Otherwise don't do the long method of making notes from the whole text book.

    What I did for my A Level sociology is made a sheet of what each sociologist said and I read through that every night and memorised it pretty quickly.

    Also, make a list of definitions of words and read through that every night.

    I just stuck sheets on my bedroom wall to make things easier.
