I'm learning contemporary american history as a general election course right now in a college. I got more than 80% in a exam but I still fell that I don't know:
- What's important? There are two many details in the textbook and lecture notes.
- How can I remember them? For example, here is question in the example: Briefly explain how America's mobilization of WW2 affected the labor movement in the United States. I can only remember some of the examples to answer the questions. I feel there are too many things in my mind which result in I can not "pull" the most important things when I take exam?
Could you please give me some advice about how to find out what's important and how to remember them?
