Logitudinal Vs Snapshot Studies

I have uploaded a PDF version of a brief explanation, the advantages and the disadvantages of Logitudinal and Snapshot Studies. This is great to download onto your space, stick in your notebook or even stick on your walls as a poster (like I do) This is a great revision technique for AS Psychology students as well as the A2s

Happy Revising!!
