    I thought altruism would be likely, but it's in the same subtopic as evolutionary explanations, and I thought they don't usually put two sub topics back to back.

    Social learning is horrible, but not as bad as intelligence .
    Yea thats true.. argh i'm so confusedddd! Why is there no pattern for this topic?!
    In jun 2006 there was social learning, and jan 2007 there was intelligence. these are both in the same topic.
    the topics have gone, 2, 3, 1, 3, 3, 2, 1. which means classical/operant, or SLT is most likely.. arghh this is stupid. it looks like i will have to learn EVERYTHING. rubbish.. anyway better crack on

    I know. I don't like disruption of the pattern :'(. (if there even is one.)

    Yeah, I'm also going to focus on conditioning and SLT. I hate those two topics though, there never seems to be enough A02/evaluative material .

    Lol, so I'm not the only one who's tried to find "2, 1, 3, 3...etc" patterns then! Where did you find the Jan 08 question?!?!??! I really want to see that question paper, not sure if it would do me any good though.

    Rar I don't want to do classical and operant conditioning, have got hardly any A02 points for them =/

    I not much use to you as the only question I'm doing the same as you is 5, which I'm predicting will be biological rhythms, but hoping it will be psychological and neurobiological theories of dreaming, as I like that one!

    Does anyone have a question paper for PYA4 Jan 08? Or know which questions came up??

    (I'm getting a bit scared, never been scared about exams before 0_0)
    dreams came up in january

    so did gender development

    ANDDDDD the evolution explanation of depression...me thinks..

    well its unlikely to come up, but that doesn't mean it wont! desperate times call for desperate measures (lol) so i'm not going to learn those that came up. as it is pretty unlikely.

    Knowing the Jan 08 questions could backfire on me actually, cause I was just about to revise origins of prejudice (see Q1), but now I know it came up in Jan I'm not gonna do it... which could work out quite badly for me if it now comes up... meeeeow hope strategic revision works.

    I don't think they've ever asked a question twice in a row, but they may ask it on the same topic ie. like they did, social learning and intelligence.

    i really hope what i revise comes up, if it doesn't i'm actually screwed. ahh well.

    I won't revise the nature of dreams (yey cause the stages of sleep are boring) but I think I will look at theories of dreaming (neurobiological/psychological) just in case. I like talking about Freud and latent content and PHALLIC SYMBOLS etc.

    Nope, I haven't done revised anything about that.

    For relationship breakdown, I just learned about Duck's model of dissolution (intrapsychic phase/dyadic phase/social phase/grave-dressing phase) and also Lee's sequences of separation. There's also a bit on reasons for relationship breakdown by Duck, but it's only brief and just mentions lack of interpersonal skills, lack of stimulation (rewards) and maintenance difficulties - i guess here you could briefly put a sentence about predisposing and precipitating factors, but it's not even mentioned in one of my two textbooks.

    For the breakdown.. i've ''learnt'' (lol)

    -duck, predisposing and precipitating.. just what they mean.
    maintenace difficulties
    model of disslution (duck)
    stages of breakdown.

    thats all i'd do for breakdown.

    maintence/formation
    reinforcement affect,
    sociobiological
    social exchange
    equity
    and research

    there not like indept just the general jist.

    then for psychological explanantions of love
    sternbergs triange of love,
    hendricks 6 styles of love
    theory of love (hatfield & walster)
    then just how it differs in cultures/westernised ie N.america & china.
