Thankyou very much for these notes

Bethany Cunningham

Oh thank you so much. It means a lot because they are incomplete.

Hi I was just wondering whether or not you followed the textbook for these notes? (I'm trying to make notes from the notebook but there's so little time and so much information ) Thanks!  :)

P.s. do you have any tips for revising as geography? 

Mist
