For Mains

  • Step 1: Make a timeline of all important events in world history like Industrial revolution, American revolution, French Revolution, Italian reunification etc.
  • Just note the events in increasing order of their time.
  • It will help in understanding interlinks between them
  • How to build a Timeline? It is a gradual process. Keep reading NCERTs (Old World History) as stories. Side by side maintain a record of important events like 1979 – Steam Engine ( Page XXX NCERT), 1811 – Luddite Revolution (Page XXX NCERT) etc.

 

  • Step 2: If you have prepared a timeline, you should have brief idea about world history timeline. Now, prepare short 1-2 page note on important topics. Analyse past 3-4 years papers of World History and you will see that questions are asked only around important events and are quite straight forward.
  • So, there is no need to cover entire book from cover to cover. Rather, choose important topics and prepare notes on them following a timeline.
  • Topics like:
    • Renaissance: Origin; Why in Italy/Europe?; Impact on Europe etc
    • Industrial Revolution: What; Why in UK?; Why other nations were late?; Impact on India; Impact on developing world; Labour conditions etc.
    • American Revolution: Conditions; Role of thinkers, leaders, foreigners; Impact on US and other world;
    • French Revolution: Conditions of French society; Role of leaders; Impact on France; Impact on Europe and other world etc.
    • In this manner, prepare notes and keep revising them.
