The AS-Psychology Student's Textbook is the definitive student's text for the 2008 AQA 'A' Psychology specification. This text covers the whole specification in colour-coded, clear and concise chapters. The philosophy behind this book is to facilitate a smooth transition between the current and the new specifications. The authors have looked closely at the way the new A level is designed, and have developed this text to ensure that the material you are familiar with, and for which you have lessons and resources, can be worked into the new design. Some changes in the specification are subtle, some are more obvious, but, throughout the book, the authors make it clear how the specification should be addressed.Electronic resources will also be available to enhance your provision. Each chapter is amply illustrated with photos and diagrams and contains key studies and vignettes to engage the student. These, together with the helpful Ask an Examiner sections make this the most user-friendly text available for the new AS specification. The book contains coverage of the all units described in the specification. It covers: Research Methods, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Biological Psychology, Social Psychology and Individual Differences. An accompanying revision guide will be available in September 2008, and the partner A2 text and revision guides will follow. Available as an eBook Site Licence ISBN 9781845905910
