A-level History timelineWatch
Currently revising by making timelines (Russia 1917-1929) and wondering if I should section it in terms of chronology or actual topic e.g. revolution, foreign intervention, power struggle etc.? Thanks for the help!
I think i drew one up. The reason its useful is because it lest you learn the core sequence of events. I always wanted to know those. Basic notes.
I would then write a second set of revision notes or mind maps dealing with specific areas. these are what you use for your exams but you cant get there without understanding how it all fits together.
So the notes might be. Rule of the Tsar- revolution- civil war- first steps in power- reforms. A decent revision You cnat write the essay without knowing how it fits together and some depth.
book will do all this for you, then its a case of moving on and writing essays.
Advice 1 master timeline.
Notes on areas with a mini selective timeline for those. i.e the key dates and events. You could make that part of a mind map.
