I have put them on little cards so i can read over them.

Spider diagrams, I have written what the case study is about e.g tourism at the top. That way i can get someone to help me with it and they just say what the case study is about so i have to remember what case study goes to each topic, plus the information about it. It has worked well.

Or little flip cards. Write on one side 'a case study about...' Or 'an example of...' They put the answer on the other side

You could stick them around your room, or keep writing them out. There are loads of ways but they wont necessarily be the right way for you, so i would say do a variety or methods and see what works best for you :)**

hey, I try to do this to learn case studies:

  • summarise what the case study is about in one or two sentences
  • list two or three positives and negatives about it 
  • list who it benefits/costs

what I did was to make sheets of bullet point notes on case studies and split them into diffent catagories like short term effects, long term effects etc, my teacher also gave me some of these already made up, read them and memorise them and write them out again I also did mindmaps of each one after I'd made those sheets, finally do some past exam questions on them to get you used to answering the longer questions. I was told that a 8 mark case study question needs 6-8 facts for 8 marks, but don't base your answer around your case study, use general facts and use your case study to back them up.

do notes in bullet point form, then pick three colours.  Each colour should represent social, economic and environmental impacts. 

Then highlight your points according to which impact it falls under.

I've also started doing Who, What, Where, Why and When on one of my case study notes :p

yeah, you could get someone to test you on them and you just say it

Or you could (quickly ;)) write down the names of the case study and put them on the floor or something and say all you know about the case study then check to see if you got it all. If you remember everything that you are meant to know about the case study then put it to the side and keep doing it until you have done all the case studies.

Make some notes as I have the exactly the same and you need to just reread it over and over agin till it sticks into your mind. Thats how I did it and it seemed to work afetr a couple of days going over it. L

I use different cards for each case study and keep them on my bedroom wall and it goes in? If you are doing WJEC GCSE I have all the case studies in one document to use however you want?

Try using flashcards - Get Revising has some good ones, or make some of your own as that can help to get the information into your head to. Put a question on the front and the answer on the back (eg. what were the effects of the haiti earthquake). Do these over and over and they will go into your head - in the exam then picture the flashcards to try and help you remember! This has been working for me so could well work for any of you :p

i know this is late but hopefully you can revise section 2 with this...

i usually write the facts i want to remember onto a white board, i then rub off the facts and write what i can remember.. this works really well for me especially with all the different topics.
