Hiya, I am studying a distance learning psychology course and am really struggling with revision. I have an exam on Social influence, memory, attachment and psychopathology. Can anyone help on revision tips/ key notes to memorise? Thank you

Hi,
For psychology, I find that making detailed notes from the textbook in lessons, then for revision making flashcards to go over and doing exam questions really helps me. Personally, I find that the memory topic is easiest to remember anyway, so when revising memory, I only really focus on briefly going over the key studies. But, in general, when revising, I tend to either write out little questions and answers on flashcards, copy down the 'key points' boxes in the textbooks (the ones that have them), or watch (while making notes) revision videos on youtube. I'm a kinaesthetic learner, so I find re-writing information in brief notes, even if I think I already know it, helps me remember it better. However, a friend of mine I know learns best through hearing, so often asks a friend to read out notes to her as a way of her revising.
Hope this helps!

Thank you so much! This helps a lot. I feel like we learn in very similar ways so I will definitely give this all a go!
