Hi guys.
Exams are drawing nearer and so I'd like to start revising sociology in the next few months.

How do I actually revise it? There is a lot of content in sociology so I'm wondering how to approach it. Should I try to revise the points in each topic and then try to remember the studies that come under those points or try to lead by studies (which technically would make the points)?
The advice will probably differ between topics (Education, for example, is quite simple) but any info (from past or present students) on how they're revising or did revise will help.

It just seems like it's difficult to know the angle to come at when revising!

Cheers.

A-Level - this discussion should be in the A-Level category.

Yep - AQA.

I think my main question in this thread is which part of each topic you should focus on - remembering the point and then trying to remember sociologists or trying to remember the sociologists (which their theories make up the points)?
