    I'm doing this too. I've got the Access to History textbook by Farmer. How am I revising? It's only been like 2 weeks I usually revise things like History by plainly writing out my notes, doing past/potential questions, and making cards.

    hi, thanks for replying
    lol I meant studing the material not revising soz
    I also have the same book are you only using that? I feel like it might not have enough info?? I like the summary diagrams after each section though
    also what past papers would you do since this is the first year for this course? there are some at the end of the book but im saving them for later

    I think the textbook has everything you'll need to get marks on the exam, but my teacher gave us a list of books we could read for more info. I've bought Levack's The Witch-Hunt in Early Modern Europe, which has been pretty useful (surprisingly easy to read). I can send you the list if you want

    I'm not sure about past paper questions. I'll probably just do what you said and do the ones at the end (alongside the ones my teacher creates, of course).

    I'm also doing this unit too and agree that the Access to History textbook is quite brief, I have Levack's book and some textbooks for witchcraft that are for Edexcel exams although the exam board is different it has much more detailed information relevant for interpretation questions and essays.

    If you guys have essays you would share maybe we could exchange resources we have done?

    For the Witchcraze, you really need to read Brian Levack and for popular culture start with Peter Burke. Robin Briggs is also a strong core text for the witchcraze, but Malcolm Gaskill has written a short guide to witchcraft, the name escapes me, but is very easy to pick up and go.

    If you are using the Farmer OCR textbook the recommended texts in the back are actually pretty useful to dip into.
