OCR AS - Level Psychology Core Studies Booklet

A Booklet i generated - its quite large (67 Pages) but it should tell you everything you need to know, with evaluation and key terms, Also a short introduction on each perspectives too! :)

But its all nicely set out with lots of bullet points so its not all cluttered!, i hope it helps!

Good luck!
