    just practise questions really.. and reading.

    i was wondering what text book you all work from? we do a mixture of cardwell/flanagan and the AQA book.. and this other random one. my teacher hates the AQA book though.

    We only use the books with cat on it. Complete companion during class, visual companion for revision.

    yeah cardwell cat book is pretty good. although my teacher has an annoying habit of saying 'oh i don't like how it's covered in this book..' so i never know what topic i'm meant to read from what textbook.

    think i'll stick with the cat book for revision... and my trusty CGP (although there seem to be some sizeable gaps, anyone else notice this?)

    Im sitting Psya1 on May 25th I believe it is? Im a private candidate revising from home while also working so its tough to juggle.

    So far have revised:

    Working memory model + strengths + weaknesses
    Multistore model + strengths + weaknesses
    Loftus and Palmer EWT
    Factors affecting EWT
    Behavioural approach to attachment
    Evolutionary approach to attachment (Bowlby)
    The effects of daycare on children (attachment and development)
    Effects of institutionalisation / Privation on children
    Ainsworths strange situation (what a load of BS that is btw? measuring childrens potential development on how they react in one given situation?)

    A bit on stress for paper 2, biological approach to abnormality and a few odd other things.

    Im hoping im well prepared when i go in ...i try do a bit every day...

    You reckon it may pop up again? As im studying from home I dont really get any advice from anyone about what may pop up or not so any advice is welcome.

    I saw your posts Effkay on the other thread when you did your paper but you missed out on your A I believe? Sorry to hear that,

    I hope they are not so difficult with the marking for Junes papers..

    Yes i missed out on an A by two raw marks. I got a photocopy of my paper and went through it with my teacher and said i should of got 5more marks minimum. So i've sent it off for a remark!
