    Hey guys, I will start these courses on my Sixth Form on September 2009.
    I would like to know which resources I can use to learn more about the subject as I want to read around the subject so that I have more idea of what I am going to study.
    The exam board for Psychology is AQA B
    The exam board for Sociology is AQA A

    Please provide me with much info as you can.

    Thanks.

    For Sociology...The AQA book designed for the course and the Harolambus (although this may be abit heavy going if you haven't started the course yet). Also keep up to date with the news etc. as contempory issues are important and are good to mention in exams if you can link it in.


    Psychology..I was on AQA A, but just get a textbook for your course

    Thank you, In Psychology and Sociology could you recommend me any websites that you particularly use? or text books and newspapers?

    What is "Harolambus"?

    Thanks!

    I don't really use any websites for these subjects, and as for newspapers it doesn't really matter as long as you are up to date with the basic things going on, I just watch the news.

    For text books, there should be some designed for your course but make sure you get the new specification which started for AS last September. However, saying that, I think the topics in Sociology may be roughly the same. I was on the old course and did education, family and methods in AS.

    The Harolambus is a huge Sociology book which has loads of information. When I say loads I really mean it lol. Our teachers told us this book was for Uni level, but said it would be good for us to use as it is so in depth. Personally, I never used it in my A Levels, except if we were told to in class. However, its a good book to have if you study Sociology. I will definiately be using it for my degree. I don't know how much these books our though, as our teachers gave us ours.

    Hope this helps
