Cognitive Approach

Its missing Godden & Baddeley's deep sea divers but I've condensed each concept into 6/7 desciption points and 6/7 aluation points. 

Note: Most of the points are a blend from various points given in the mark schemes and so, if you write these word for word in the exam, you should get the mark.

Its in a table format with key words on the left side so that you can print it out and use it as que cards/ revision cards as well.

Hope this helps! :)


"::" stands for "Therefore,"
