    Hi!

    I do A level psychology and just wondered if anyone had some great tips for simply memorising huge amounts of studies and remembering the correct researcher! Some studies I just can’t remember - help!

    Thanks😊

    You really don't need to know the names of every study! Focus on a few key names.

    And flash cards work well for studies as you have to condense them down to a single card, getting the most important info out of the study.

    yeah, don't force yourself to learn each single name and definitely don't learn dates, it'll just confused you more.

    Learn a few from each topic e.g attachment e.g Harlow, Lorenz, Bowlby

    Flash cards are good but also try simplypsychology

    Using word association is really useful
    for example when we did the effect of discussion on eyewitness testimony, i memorised Gabbert's name because 'gab' means talking a lot and that is what people do in discussion.

    make links like this and eventually they'll stick in your head
    for me its useful for quick recall as well as in exam use.
