Review Links for Your 1st Semester Final

If you feel ready to tackle review for your first semester final (which means you probably have already completed your review of Thinking & Language, see previous post for resources), here some resources to get you started:
  • First, you want to know what you are up against. You will get a copy of this in class (was scheduled to hand out this on Monday, Jan. 6, but obviously the weather interfered). It describes what the final will look like, and has some basic tips for study.
  • As the above handout suggests, you'll want to systematically review each unit/chapter. Here's a handy list of terms/concepts from first semester (which should help speed creation of concept maps or outlines). I will also make copies of this available in class. 
  • Check out the Study Resources page for lots of general review resources. Including this Learnerator site for AP Psychology with practice multiple choice items (some require paid access, but many you can try for free). 
I've also created a Quizlet flashcard set that combines all of the flashcards from 1st Semester this year. It's a whopper, but if you want to brush up on your vocabulary there is no better tool. Use the settings to shuffle & randomize terms (or better yet, complete the "Learn" mode) for a recall challenge.

Also, many students find reviewing the important "names" in psychology to be a helpful study approach. Below, I've embedded the Famous Psychologists quizlet. Please note that it contains the big names from the WHOLE year, so there are folks in here you may not be familiar with. But many will be familiar, so study away!
