    Hi Guys,

    I really felt with unit 1 psychology I had a really clear structure of everything which I needed to know.. however with unit 2 I don't feel I have a clear structure. Obviously I know the main topics are stress, social influence and abnormality, I'm just worried of leaving something out and not revising it!

    If someone could outline to me what I need to know in which topic I'd be really grateful!!!
