As has been said recently, many of these AS / A2 questions require a specific level of detail that your teacher would be best to advise you on. The Internet is a great source of information for overviews and at times, in-depth analysis, but nothing would be a substitute for your class notes and textbook(s).

To put your analysis in persepective you need to consider what happened after the Tudors - what does this suggest about the Tudor use of Parliament?

You can find out about the Tudor Parliament at the following sites - but not in real depth:

Henry VII

Henry VIII

Elizabeth I

Images of parliament:

Parliament overall (not just Tudors):

This list of books might be helpful as well - visit your local library:

Mr Field is quite right - no substitute for your teacher's classwork/notes/guidance and reference to textbooks.

However, one thing on the Internet that is useful here is the page of Lecture Notes on Tudor Parliament on
John Guy's site (Author of 'Tudor England'). Select the drop-down box under the heading 'other Notes' and select 'Parliament'. Bear in mind that these are Lecture Notes for his Uni undergraduates, but as long as you are already a bit familiar with the topic you should be able to make sense of them.

There is other stuff on his site you may find helpful in your revision; explore the drop-down menus on the page i have given.

The great shame is that John Guy hasn't done anything more on his site since 2000 :(

PS. It would be good to know whether the help we have provided in answer to your other questions has been helpful. It gets a bit discouraging to go to some trouble to help people when there's no feedback B)
