      I find either flash cards or mind maps useful. I just keep trying to re-write mindmaps until i know everything :) You can make digital ones on or examtime >-<

      I suggest make a history dictionary (using a small notebook) with all the key terms, people and dates inside. You would split pages into words that start with the same letter (like a dictionary) and at the back pages, have all the key dates. Then, just look over a few words once a day. This will help you remember facts and will get you prepared for the mocks.

      i have about 800 flash cards on the side of my table and whenever i come across a fact in history, i would always take it down and revise all of my flash cards before going to bed... Really really helps!!! i would recommend for you.

      Having a personal interest in history is key to remembering the dates,places,people and events, you must want to learn
