Just keep reading and rewriting the notes you make in class, do this the evening after your psychology lesson. It helps to refresh your memory.

Revise your notes over and over agin. Colours, I find, are useful.

Answer a lot of pastpapers, too. I find this really beneficial. And, i don't think knowing the dates are very important. You won't get marked down OR up for dates.

If in the exam, you forget a study, don't worry. Just say "Rsearch shows..." "A study shows..."

umm. i suggest that you break everything down. into the catergories of psychologies. then group the studies accordingly. and then for each study write down the aim, hymothesis, method, sample, ethical issues. and all that.

try this out, it may be more easier.

it got me an A :)

If you look on my resources i have uploaded all the parts needed for autism so far, and i will be doing the rest this week. The way i find easiest is to break each section down, and practice model essays, these are the things you will gain most marks on, if you create a model essay and practice them out loud saying them to yourself like a parrot your bound to remember them by the exam. 2 people at my school got 100% in the psychology exam and their tip was just to write out the model essays and say them to herself out loud over & over again. Like it says in the memory and forgetting part, reharsing information is more likely to be stored in the long term memory. Always structure your essays Aim, Method, Results, Conclusion, Evaluative comments and try to compare and contrast your essay with other studies. :))

I'd say with names, try and related them to thinks you remember easily, people you may know with similar names, or changing one or two letters to make it a word you'll remember. Works for me! dont worry too much about dates, yes you can get extra marks for 'in depth knowledge' but marks aren't 'taken away' for not mentioning them :)

You don't need to remember the dates for the studies, what Mel said is absolutely correct and I find it a great way to memorise all of the studies. Relate each study to something that can act as a retrieval cue. For example Parker and Carranza (1989) compared primary school children and college students in their ability to identify a target individual. You can remember this by grouping 'Parker' with 'Primary' and 'Carranza' with 'College', then next time you hear Parker and Carranza you will automatically remember Primary and College.
