Book Description

Student Unit Guides are perfect for revision. Each guide is written by an examiner and explains the unit requirements, summarises the relevant unit content and includes a series of specimen questions and answers.

There are three sections to each guide:

Introduction - includes advice on how to use the guide, an explanation of the skills being tested by the assessment objectives, an outline of the unit or module and, depending on the unit, suggestions for how to revise effectively and prepare for the examination questions.

Content Guidance - provides an examiner's overview of the module's key terms and concepts and identifies opportunities to exhibit the skills required by the unit. It is designed to help students to structure their revision and make them aware of the concepts they need to understand the exam and how they might analyse and evaluate topics.

Question and Answers - sample questions and with graded answers which have been carefully written to reflect the style of the unit. All responses are accompanied by commentaries which highlight their respective strengths and weaknesses, giving students an insight into the mind of the examiner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for any AS Students! 8 Sep 2011
By Jessica
Extremely helpful revision guide for anyone doing Edexcel Psychology AS. The way it is laid out in sections with the methodology the descriptions and the evaluations is fantastic giving you exactly the key words needed to get those precious marks in the exam! In the back there are example exam answers telling you bad and good answers so you can see what you should be aiming for. Overall, very well laid out and it was an essential revision aid to my revision last year!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good 18 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Quite a good book. It looks at the psychodynamic approach, biological approach and the learning approach. However, it does not cover every single study in detail. Instead, it covers the "compulsary" study in detail you have to do and one other (Edexcel gives you a choice of 3 study in details you can choose from for each approach) so, unfortunately, if you buy this book, don't think that it covers everything.
