    hello
    I did a psychology degree, and took that module. You should be able to get hold of past exams papers that will give you an idea of what areas they focus on. Ask in your department office, ask your tutor, or see if the library keep copies of past exams.
    You can work out which areas come up again and again, but read around other topics too, just in case you can't answer the question on your topic. Learn bullet point facts and names and experiments to back them up, a few classic studies and one or two obscure ones for each essay question should get you through. Talk to other people on your course and see what they are revising and get some moral support.
    Oh, and next year, I'd advise getting all this sorted early on and keeping your notes clear, as with a dissertation and project, you'll run out of time to revise and panic.
    Good Luck
    Susie

    Ah but it is fun, especially the final year as you usually get much more choice on what modules to take. However, exams are exams... <IMG alt="image" SRC="tongue.gif" border="0">

    I'm doing criminology, but pyschology is a module.
    Being a sociologist, I HATE IT <IMG alt="image" SRC="mad.gif" border="0">

    It is such a crappy subject and it should be banned forever and ever and ever. <IMG alt="image" SRC="tongue.gif" border="0">

    First day back today;

    9am was a lab class so I've got "Primacy-Recency" coursework to do for next Monday.

    11:30am got my "Attribution" coursework back, I only handed half of it in (no procedure, results or discussion) so I have to resubmit it for a maximum of 40% (I got 31%). thats also for next Monday.

    Can't wait for tomorrow!

    I've also got a write up to do, I haven't bought any books yet and I've never been in the library. I also took the piss on my IT and Study Skills module and might fail that too.

    I realise I'd better stop pissing about on the internet and get on with it. I have no motivation at all. Exams are looming in the distance too.
