Does anyone have any suggestions for what materials i will need and if anyone has taken or is taking psychology, do you have any general advice?

What do you mean by materials? Books? Unless you have money to spare I wouldn't advise buying much until you start your course. Recommended course texts tend to be very expensive and more often than not you can get away with borrowing them from the library.

As Bluth says, wait until you get there to buy books. Some you can buy cheap, and some you may not need very much so you can borrow them from the library instead. It's a good idea to have a look through the books before you buy too, as for some of the modules you may get to choose which book, so get which one suits you best.

General materials- Scientific calculator (but not a programmable one, as you're not usually allowed them in exams)
Pens
Highlighters
Ruler (optional for graph sketches)
A couple of good notepads
A couple of ringbinders for marked essays and stats folder

They're the basics, hope that helps a bit.

Alot of them aren't no, due to the high number of diagrams etc many of them aren't availible on the kindle.
And when it comes to a stats book, it is useful to be able to take it to lectures.
