History 20, Winter 2009, Professor Bell PREPARING FOR THE MULTIPLE CHOICE PORTION OF THE MIDTERM EXAM There is no one “right” way to do this. Any or all of the following suggestions, instructions, and examples may help you to figure out your own personal “best strategy” for preparing for this portion of the exam. SUGGESTION 1 : REVIEW YOUR LECTURE NOTES AND MAKE SURE YOU KNOW SOMETHING CONCRETE ABOUT EACH OF THE FOLLOWING “BIG ISSUES”: The rise of modernity The Enlightenment Liberalism Marxism Socialism; Communism Imperialism Social Darwinism Nationalism Populism Fascism Alliances among nation states and the wars that followed from them The rise of disaffected intellectuals and their contributions to revolution or reform in non-Western locations Self-determination The Great Depression Emerging conflict between “Democracy” and “Communism” by the 1940s (the onset of the Cold War) SUGGESTION 2 : As you think over what you have been learning about in lectures, and reading about in your textbook, consider how you would answer the following questions. I call these “discussion questions,” and find this sort of tool useful in helping to generate discussion for the purposes of reviewing lecture material; these may best be used in small group study (in Discussion Sections, for example, time permitting), or in study groups that students themselves put together.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
