for the key studies, try and learn one, then write it down and check it. do this a few times and itl be stuck in your head. Pretty annoying way but it works and for the theory i think im just going to have a read through the book over relevant parts thoroughly once i've revised the key studies.

hope it helps

As someone else said, just writing the important bits out over and over again, trying to rely on your memory more and more each time. Eventually it should stick..does me :P

I'm doing Aqa A.

It's really hard. Doing so well on the memory side (getting A's and B's) but on the attachment I've gone from a B to a D to an E ooops!

I'm trying to teach my Mum it (not very interesting) and making a powerpoint with it.

I've looked at writing out studies, think I'm gunna have to keep going over them!!!!

Maybe try making some yourself??

If you have an insane amount of studies to learn like I do, I found making a huge table of them all on Word, then dividing it up into topics, and go through all the studies summarising them into the table, with some evaluation issues briefly for each one. Its all neatly and orderly layed out to look at. Plus the summarising crams quite alot of it into your head aswell. Well thats what I've been doing. Then something else with definitions, theories etc. Might be useful

yep so many studies!! I think I will be learning them section by section e.g. explanations of attachment, daycare etc. Like you say, doing it section by section can help you link back studies to section. Cheers!

The research methods exam? OCR?
If it is...i'm going to print out some notes and read through them. I learnt the majority of it at GCSE. I probably won't start till tuesday though.

No past paper questions - New spec

So just gotta go over ones we did in class, ones from text book etc.

Think some people from psychology are organising a 1 hour msn revision session, firing questions at each other etc

To remember all the studies at AS, me and my friend made a song It actually worked, we both got As.
But apart from that, look at examiners reports and mark schemes, it really helps. All you can do with psychology is remember as much as possible. For PYA3, I didn't understand any of it, but I just remembered what was written in the book and pretty much re-wrote it in the exam and got an A for that unit.
