Hi everyone or for those who do A-level Psychology! Has anyone started revision yet and if you have what have you done so far? Also what topics are you all doing for Paper 3? In class we've already gone through Eating Behaviour and Addiction. We will probably start Gender sometime this week.

How are you finding revision so far? I don't feel as motivated sometimes and can't revise but really need to get into the habit especially for psychology. We are still yet to do Issues and Debates, was it straightforward like not as tough?

Im trying to revise, some days are more productive than others but I have mocks after Christmas so I need to step it up soon! Issues and debates is quite a short topic and pretty easy to understand, we used the aqa text book with the pink hair girl on it and I find that very useful! Its pretty much just focusing on an argument eg nature vurses nurture or holism vs reductionism but it is easier and shorter than topics like gender! Its also useful because you can then use the issues as evaluation points and apply them to the other topics you do!

Are those textbooks with the coloured hair girl helpful? I know a few people who have the books and say it's useful and some say it's not got everything.

I really like them, I hate text books that are just blocks of text where as those ones have a really simple layout and break everything down. They also have practise questions at the bottom of the page, from 4 to 16 markers which are really helpful for revision! The only thing is that they dont have a lot of detail when talking about studies. Obviously they have a whole page for research like Milgram and Ainsworth, but for smaller studies we often use another textbook!

I'll probably get the textbook. I use the booklets given by my psychology teachers and we go through it in class but on the side I have the Cara Flanagan Psychology books for both the years and they're really good. I find the revision guides by Flanagan better as the evaluation is concise and gets you the full marks.
