Flash cards or mindmaps ( year and what happened ).i used flashcards last minute but prefer to use  mindmaps at the start.Put a summary on one side of the flashcard  and the date on the other and get somebody to test you last minute.

What I did was create a timeline, so I put all the dates in chronological order, and then I wrote down each event next to the date.

It really helps knowing which order the events go in, therefore helping to learn the dates :)

Weird, I know, but look in the mirror and say it in different voices. Seems to work for me! :)

Another idea is to put sticky notes all over your room and walk around reading them. Try all the more you repeat, the more likely it is to stay in your long term memory.

Good Luck :D

try using timelines put dates in chronological order and stick em somewhere i.e. on a wall in your room/ where you usually spend a lot of time.... it should slowly begin to sink in.. ;)
