hi everyone,
I am in year 13 and I have my mocks in the next few weeks however my preferred method of revision will take longer than a few weeks to work as each subject has over 500 flashcards to learn. does anyone have any quick revision techniques I could do to revise the whole of the USA (1952-92) topic?

Just make notes or read your existing ones. Everyone has their own method, but revision notes are merely condensed flashnotes.
I quite like mindmaps and timelines for History as they give you the framework to answer questions. You wouldnt need to do the whole of the topic 75% will be enough based on the way they ask questions.

okay thank you, I will focus solely on the presidents' accomplishments (legislations) and key events like the civil rights movement

hopefully, or at least tell me what to ignore. quick question, do you (or anyone reading) have the book its called 'democracies in change', is the key topics to know in bolder lettering than those in not? if that makes sense. also, how do you know what's important as my last mock I got a question on Reaganomics about the budget deficit. so I'm guessing that won't come up again as we have been tested on it, and hopefully won't come up in 2020 as it already been a question for 2019 I believe (warning: word vomit!)

You could still make flashcards if you use a program like Quizlet to make electronic flashcards, assuming you hand write yours

No idea. some people prepare topics, but it can be risky.
You must have known these were coming over the summer. As I said timelines and mindmaps are the things I found most useful.
