    I'm currently preparing for my first AS psychology examination in January (AQA A) and am looking for the best revision guide. As of yet, I've only been able to find this but have been informed that CGP is typically insufficient for A-level revision.

    Also, what is the best way to go about revising for psychology? Should I mainly focus on the revision guides and lesson notes? Should I be working through past papers? Also, I'm planning to start revision this weekend - do you think I've started too late? I only have one other exam in January (Critical Thinking) and so plan to spend the majority of my revision time during the Christmas holiday on psychology.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd just focus mainly on lesson notes and your textbook tbh.
    Lesson notes should cover most things, and if you ensure you cross link occassionally with your textbook you should be fine?
    Feel lucky, i have 4 exams....

    Without a doubt you want to use
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Com...2964400&sr=8-3

    I used it for PSYA2 exam and got 97/100. Its a good supplement and a good way to focus your revision, which contains all the main points you need I personally used it as my main revision tool, and added to the key points towards the end from using my textbook. Look at past papers, and more importantly how they are marked and even examiners reports, and you should do fine.

    For the money, you want that book. It doesn't cover everything in lots of detail but does cover the bare minimum you need to know, and is great to use for revision.
