If you are preparing for the examination, it is best to teach the material not by tickets, and by historical periods. This decreases the risk that you just will get confused in numerous historical figures, rulers, wars, reforms, and events. The story develops naturally from the assumptions derived from the causes, events and consequences. So, if you are familiar with the reign of Ivan the terrible, then you will not be difficult to name the main causes of the Troubles. If you are well prepared for the period of the great Patriotic war and know how has been ravaged country in time of war and occupation, I can tell and about the main problems of post-war economic development, the restoration of the economy.
Another very important point: among the historians (both domestic and foreign) there is a huge range of opinions about different historical processes and events. In addition, many articles and books are often full of unnecessary details. So don't try to grasp the immensity, we will focus on one textbook or manual. And not some exotic, related to alternate history, and ancient Soviet manuscript, discovered in grandma's attic. Take the most famous, for example, publications of Moscow state University. And if you are in written or oral form to Express the exam some theoretical calculations can refer to it.
After you learned the basic periods of history of Russia, it would be nice to take a walk through the historical personalities: princes, kings, emperors, generals, public and political figures, bishops. If you have a good memory, do not be lazy to find out and remember not only the name, but the name and patronymic of public figures and cultural figures. This produces a positive effect on the examiner or reviewer of written work as evidence of your broad-minded and literacy.
And most importantly – don't be afraid that you just do not to learn all the material. All work if good try.
As a rule, many difficult to remember historical dates. Here there are many ways, but not all of them can come to you. Someone just is a chronology, as they say, studying everything. This usually leads to that person only knows the name and date. For example, the Decembrist uprising occurred in 1825. Who are the Decembrists, why, and against which they needed to rebel? This is not remember. Someone is looking for Association. For example, in 1612 he seems sour and spicy 1917, 1990 – spherical, and 1147 – barbed. The main thing is not to get confused. It seems that the best option to not teach dates and events that make up the content of historical periods or periods of the reign of one of the kings or emperors. If you remember, the decree fixed years went on 24 November 1597, remember, its order in the process of enslavement of the peasantry (after reserved years 1581 and before the Council code of 1649). Or maybe it will be easier to remember that it was signed by the Tsar Fyodor Ivanovich – son of Ivan the terrible.
