Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edexcel AS Psychology Student Unit Guide: Unit 1 Social and Cognitive Psychology (Student Unit Guides) (Paperback)
Quite a good book. The problem with the Edexcel syllabus is that you get a choice of which "Study in detail" and theory you want to do and this book does not cover all of them. Instead, it covers the "compulsary" one you have to do and it gives you another one. For example, for "theories of memory",it looks at "Levels of Processing" and "Reconstruction" theory (even though my class had looked at "Multi store model").
I did not think the strengths and weaknesses for some things were that good - some points were repeated. Also, the layout is a slightly odd. For example, it's 6/7 pages after the introduction of "questionnaires", do you find out the strengths and weaknesses of it.
There's alot of text in this "Unit guide" book compared to others I have bought which are alot more bullet pointed but that is probably what you would expect from a psychology book.
Pretty good book though.
