    Is it important that I remember the procedures of each case study or not? What I mean is, do I need to learn the procedural points thoroughly? Because I don't think you need to write about how a study was done, you just write their aims and findings, right? But you can bring these points in when evaluating. Is this so?

    I'm sorry for not structuring this question clearly.

    Any help will be much appreciated

    I suggest you remember procedures of the big, main studies like ainsworth, bowlby etc (assuming you're in your AS year) and then the findings for the rest of the studies so that you have relevant references and evidence to use when backing up a point.

    Also, look at past paper questions and work through them slowly using your notes and structure model answers. Whilst doing this, you'll see how much detail you need to go into in terms of writing about a study.

    I agree with the post above, but I think that you only need to remember parts of the study that are relevant and that you'll evaluate. E.g. Sample size only if you're going to talk about generalising or how participants were deceived with confederates only if you're going to talk about deception as an ethical problem. Although you can obviously talk about those as AO2 points without mentioning those in your description of the study.
