There are so many key terms in unit 1 psya1, like duration and capacity. But i am unsure of which ones we have to definitely know. Does anyone know which ones are the key terms that you need to know for the exam for memory, attachment and research methods. If you can for unit 2 too even though I haven't started it yet.
also the spec!
hey I am doing the same subject as you, we've just finished research method and going to start memory when we are bak, what i can tel you to check in more than one text book - if the key terms are there then it most likely you need to know them
