Hello!
So I am thinking of taking Psychology for AQA GCSE.
INTEREST only, the school offers CIE IGCSE. So I chose this basically because I am ABSOLUTELY interested in this subject.

Yet, I am not sure whether there are tutors in my place that can teach me this subject, so I think I might need to self-study....

1) Is self-studying okay for psychology in AQA GCSE?
2) What textbook(s) do you recommend (especially for the ones who are self-studying)?
I've seen some in Amazon that have quite great ratings and reviews:
a. AQA GCSE Psychology by Karen Boswell (http://www.amazon.co.uk/AQA-GCSE-Psy...pr_product_top)
b. AQA Psychology for GCSE: Understanding Psychology 3rd Edition by Barbara Woods (http://www.amazon.co.uk/AQA-Psycholo...pr_product_top)
c. Psychology: A Complete GCSE Course by Geoffrey Shoesmith (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/034098531...oding=UTF8&me=)


THANKS!!! Image

When I did GCSE I bought the Barbara Woods one. It was the one that was used in school as well by the teachers to show us studies ect..

I would say everything we did was in that book, so self teaching yourself it shouldn't be a problem. However some things could be confusing without a teacher to ask

I personally found AQA GCSE psychology really easy, and I think that this is simply because there is little application, what is in the textbooks is exactly what you write in the exam except for when it comes to data. I used a kerboodle textbook and they seem to be the best as there’s no BS just straight knowledge and facts
