    Hello guys
    So I’m basically taking AS level psychology, I’ve always had an interest in psychology but never really studied it before. I know I can manage it well because I can memorize properly but I have a few questions regarding it

    Do I need to memorize the research methods in the book? The ones that come in boxes. Or do I need to just understand them to get a clearer idea and not memorize them?

    I’m also self studying it because my school doesn’t offer the subject , so is there any tips and advice from anyone who has taken it before and things I need to focus on entirely?

    Thank you 😄😄

    Hey, I take a level psychology and I've just started proper revision for my summer exams, in terms of research methods, the ones which I understand I will do questions on to reinforce the learning etc, for the ones I don't i.e all the statistical tests which I don't understand i have just memorised patterns and names so I know how to recall the information, but I mean I have no idea what it means or anything else. Sometimes this is the only way. For me the topic I've really struggled on understanding on a whole is memory! So take more time for this or for any subject you struggle with, take a look at the website tutor2u it is such a good revision and learning tool and also YouTube videos have always helped me, hope this helps!
