    firstly, we can't help you - It is your revision.

    I recommend, breaking into small chucks and do a chapter a day, going over it until you understand the content! if you try and do the WHOLE thing, it will increase your anxiety and nothing will sink in!

    hope this helps and good luck

    Pretty sure you don't have to read all 500 pages of both books.

    Try looking at other peoples revision.
    Work on knowing the theories, being able to apply the studies. Find the key studies, then expand with your own AO2. Have your generic(gender/cultural/sample bias, ecological validity, mundane realism....) and specific AO2(Like Peter Tripp, supports the theory, his sleep deprivation didn't cause any physical effects but he did have reduced cognitive ability thus supporting the restoration model(I'm hoping I have the right one since I haven't studied it for a while). However the study itself has several criticisms...case study-individual differences(randy gardner)-cultural bias-gender bias-thus undermining the support for the theory), have some IDAs prepared for each study, remember if it's a certain approach particular IDA's can be applied.

    Practice questions. Remember AS is less about essays while A2 is more so. Practice makes perfect. Make sure you get the right balance and check model answers. Do past papers. Get your teacher to go through your essays, give feedback. Do some practice write ups for research methods. Make up or do an expeirment with friends, then write it up like a proper experiment, making sure you identify the correct test (Mann Whitney, Spearman rho, Chi Square)

    Remember you don't have to know every unit! Good luck
