HSC Modern History: The Weimar Republic

Modern History is an exciting subject! However, it can get pretty full on and students, such as myself, can often feel that there is a exceptional amount of information, sometimes way too much that can be retained! However, by reinforcing certain aspects of the course via methods such as quizzes, it can really help you a lot!

In Modern History one of the courses that can be studied is Germany. The course picks up on the situation in Germany post World War 1, the first topic being based on "The Weimar Republic." So, before doing this quiz I would recommend studying all the information you have on this topic. Once you feel that you have a good enough understanding of it, go for the quiz!
