This book is a must-have for any psychology student, or anyone who has an interest in psychology. It covers studies relating to all areas of the subject, which are presented in a clear, coherent manner. This book is set out really well, everything is easily accessible and is interesting to read, which makes a change from many books, in this one there's not a chance of getting bored with the way it's written. Another very helpful part of this book is that there are sample questions and suggested answers which help with understanding the studies. All in all an extremely worthwhile buy!

For any students studying OCR AS psychology this is a gem of a book. This book summarises all of the 20 core studies concisely in a readable style. As well as the 20 core studies, there are also other 'classic' studies in psychology which could come in use for coursework or second-year modules.
As if that wasn't enough, the chapter on methodology in this book is probably one of the best chapters on the topic that I have ever read.
Really this is the core text for OCR psychology; a fantastic book; but, what else would you expect from the gent who used to be the Chief Examiner for the course?
