Now in full colour, this thoroughly revised and updated 3rd edition of Psychology for AS Level takes into account all the latest changes to the AQA-A syllabus since the last edition was published. It remains closely mapped to the specification making it ideal for students taking the AS Level Psychology exam. New to this edition is a strong emphasis on exam technique, giving students the best chance possible of the highest grades. A whole chapter is devoted to how to study and how to pass, with an 'Examiner's Viewpoint' written by the Chief Examiner at AQA-A. Throughout the book are hints and tips on picking up marks, and there are constant page references to the summarised content in our companion AS revision guide. Further examination support is provided by our accompanying student website, AS Online, available on a subscription basis to all schools and sixth form colleges that adopt the text. This includes a Student Workbook, interactive exercises, sample essays, interactive multiple-choice questions, a complete Exam Companion and much more. We also provide teacher resources free of charge to qualifying adopters which include a week-by-week teaching plan, sample essays, chapter-by-chapter lecture presentations, and classroom exercises and activities. Please see http://www.a-levelpsychology.co.uk/online for further details of these resources and a demo chapter of AS Online. The book includes coverage of six key areas in psychology: human memory, attachments in development, stress, abnormality, social influence and research methods. It retains the thorough content, volume of features and excellent writing style of previous editions but the layout is now fully structured to improve accessibility. Unlike other A-Level textbooks which focus solely on passing the exam, ‘Psychology for AS Level’ is also designed to foster an interest in the study of psychology as a subject. To this end, the book includes an additional general chapter to introduce the theories and explanations that make psychology a fascinating discipline.

This thoroughly revised and updated second edition of Psychology for AS Level takes into account all the amendments to the AQA-A syllabus since the last edition was produced. The text is mapped more closely to the specification, making this an ideal resource for students following the course. This edition has responded effectively to changes made by AQA to the exam format. It is now necessary for students to demonstrate understanding of twenty-five key research topic areas, through knowledge of related experiments and studies. Questions may require students to present appropriate studies either in APFCC format (Aims, Procedures, Findings, Conclusions and Criticisms), or with awareness of the wider theoretical and methodological context. Both methods of presentation are featured in Psychology for AS Level (Second Edition), with twenty-five Key Studies mentioned discursively throughout the text supported by new stimulus material, and in APFCC format in an appendix at the back for easy reference. required to define. Definitions of these Key Terms are highlighted in boxes on relevant pages, as well as identified in the comprehensive glossary at the back. In addition to encompassing the most up-to-date syllabus developments, this book retains both the easy writing style and effective features of the previous edition. It includes discussion points, illustrations, case studies and detailed chapter summaries to enhance the study of the six key areas of memory, childhood attachment, stress, abnormality, social influence and research methods and consequently will be a valuable textbook for any student covering psychology at AS level.
