A2 Psychology: Key Topics

A2 Psychology: Key Topics

by Michael W . Eysenck (Author)


Key Topics in A2 Psychology, based on the bestselling Psychology for A2 Level by Michael Eysenck, offers an innovative, alternative approach to tackling the AQA-A A2 psychology syllabus by focusing on key optional topics. Feedback from teachers reveals that certain options are more widely taught than others, and this book reflects the fact that many schools are restricted by the timetable and are unable to cover the entire course. Key Topics in A2 Psychology covers the most popular topics, taking relevant chapters from Psychology for A2 Level, including the compulsory modules such as coursework. The result is a unique, highly readable book of a manageable length, which will allow teachers to guide their students effectively through their studies. The complete and comprehensive Psychology for A2 Level will continue to be available for schools that prefer to teach other options and for students who wish to read around their key topic areas. The book is written in the same accessible and engaging style that has become the hallmark for all titles in the Psychology Press A-Level programme and contains a number of helpful features: - Full and thorough coverage of the most popular topics, including key sections from both the Options and Synoptic papers, as well as Coursework - Careful explanations that are easy to read and enable clear understanding - Case studies of real-life examples - Important key studies, each with critical evaluation and discussion points - Detailed end-of-section summaries - Exam-style questions to test understanding and give exam practice - Exam tips to enable students to practise structuring their essays - Suggested activities and self-assessment questions to stimulate thought and interpretation - Suggestions for further reading, in print and on-line - Many illustrations and humorous drawings to reinforce learning objectives - Tips and suggestions for studying, learning, and preparing for exams and coursework - Glossary of key terms

Media Reviews
'This is an excellent resource for both students and teachers, especially useful alongside the A2 Key Topics revision guide. The information is clear and the approach is very student friendly, and of course it ties in so well with the demands of the specification. This book makes teaching or studying psychology really organised and easy to plan, following a unique Key Topics approach.' - Evie Bentley, Haywards Heath College 'Key Topics in A2 Psychology not only provides students with an essential framework for these topics, it also helps them to focus on the key concepts and issues needed to write coherent essays.' - Roz Brody, Brighton, Hove and Sussex Sixth Form College (BHASVIC)
