Does anyone have any tips on how to revise for sociology?

I'm trying to revise AS Topics (Family, educations and research methods) whilst learning A2 topics (crime and deviance (idk the other topic we are doing).

I don't think my AS notes are detailed enough and I have purchased the wrong revision books

Didn't your teacher give you a pile of notes with a list of researcher names, terms etc?

I’m the same position and feel like I have no time to revise whilst also learning but the best thing I can recommend is getting the right book (either by the library or even buying will be worth it in the end) in my book they have quick check questions at the end of each topic hopefully yours is the same. If not try using resources on here for quick revision and watching YouTube videos as supplements. When you have the time try doing AS exam questions and re-making notes

We have been given a load of sheets of paper and I have no idea where to start. I have the researchers and all the notes but I don't think that they explain much. They're too vague and bullet pointed.

Mee too, like when I do actually get round to revising i'm just really clueless and I don't know where to start. I shall look into getting the new sociology revision guide. Do you perhaps have any recommendations for youtubers who do sociology?

I haven’t found any particularly good ones which are specifically for the specification but crash course have general sociology videos and if you search your topic, ie ‘labelling theory in crime and deviance’ you’ll find some stuff

we don't even have that, i'm just using the names in my notes that i copied from the powerpoints. What exam board are you? I recognise some of the sociologists e.g. Murdok, Ann Oakley, Engels, Karl Marx, Dobash and Dobash, Murray, Durkheim, Parsons etc

That would be great and very helpful thank you!

Also, do you happen to know how to do essay plans?

i'm not sure if this counts but I find that if i answered a question using my notes and then remebering it from there is much easy than remembering just the content on its own? (if you get what I mean) is this/would this be classed as an essay plan? or do you have to plan the essay from memory?

I'm not entirely sure what you mean, sorry.
Also, I don't think I have notes showing how to plan an essay as I was mainly taught in class.

All you mainly need to do it introduce the discussion and define the terms at the start. Then have 3 paragraphs that might agree or disagree with the argument, afterwards do a paragraph for each sociological theory like Marxist and say their opinion on the subject. Then finally at the end do a conclusion.
