This thoroughly updated, full colour, fifth edition of AS Level Psychology has been completely revised to match the requirements of the latest AQA-A specification. It takes a new streamlined approach, focusing only on exactly what the students need to know to pass their exams with flying colours.
The book covers six key areas in psychology:
- Early Social Development
- Research Methods
- Social Influence
Written by Michael W. Eysenck, one of Europe’s leading psychologists, in his trademark accessible, student-friendly style, the chapters present concise and focused coverage of all topics covered in the AS Level Psychology syllabus. In accordance with the AQA-A specification, the book focuses on the nature and scope of psychology as a science with an emphasis on how science works, and provides guidance on how to engage students in practical scientific research activities. Numerous textbook features are provided to aid understanding.
As in previous editions the book is packed with advice on exam technique which will give students the best possible chance of achieving the highest grades. A chapter is devoted to ‘preparing for the AS Exam’ with guidance on how to study and how to pass. Hints and tips on picking up marks are frequent throughout the text.
AS Level Psychology, Fifth Edition is supported by extensive online resources. The student resources include weblinks, points for discussion, a comprehensive glossary, and also flash cards.
