I am an early (YR 11) AS Student and purchased this book to prepare for the course. As it's my first A-Level one year early, I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is studying for this course! It explains everything in detail so you can fully grasp the concepts. There aren't as many visuals as with this book http://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-Psychology-Student-Book-ActiveBook/dp/1846902614/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371475001&sr=8-1&keywords=as+edexcel+psychology but does cover many things the book does not.
The only thing I didn't like was that it explains a lot that you don't need to know and so without a teacher guiding you with what you do need to know, you may end up stressing over trying to learn everything!
And I didn't stick to it like glue throughout the year, as it is only useful for when the teacher/other student book only covers a study briefly.
Overall, if you prepare for lessons before the teacher has given it, and/or take time to learn concepts, I would recommend this book. (More helpful if used alongside the student book in the link).
