AQA Psychology for A Level Year 1 & AS Student Book


"I found the book very easy to use. The broad subject matter seemed much less of a challenge when broken down into such clear sections. The tips about common misunderstandings and definitions are great. I also particularly like the multiple choice 'quizzes' at the end of each chapter as they gave me confidence about how much information I had learnt and highlighted any key topics that may not have quite sunk in. Overall an excellent way to get to grips with the syllabus."  Becca Gattrell, self studying A level student


5 out of 5 stars review, Waterstones

"Fantastic content and presentation.  Having seen this I'm a lot more relaxed about teaching the new spec. I can totally see how students will get their AO1, AO2 and AO3 - my planning time has just been cut significantly! It's AQA endorsed but unlike some endorsed books this one is really readable.”


5 out of 5 stars Amazon reviews:

"This book follows the new AQA specification perfectly and is an outstanding resource to prepare for exams and revision."

"A fantastic guide to the new spec "

"Great to read a text book that is centred around the user yet also invaluable for the teacher. And love the digital bundle.  At last a book fit for purpose for the 21st century. "

"The chapter looks amazing! Engaging, great layout and student friendly.  We're excited to see more and use it next year!  Head of Psychology, Newbury

 

AQA Psychology for A Level Year 1 & AS Digital Book Bundle


Q:  "Does anyone know of any good websites or online resources which are interactive and exciting? "

A: "Have you got the Illuminate digital online book? That's really good!"

Two teachers posting on an online forum 11/11/15


"This is an excellent resource for the new specification that provides a series of visually engaging topic areas that focus well on the requirements of the new exam. The accompanying digital bundle gives the students the opportunity to further develop the independent study skills that are an essential requirement for success at A level."  Mark Jones, South Gloucestershire and Stroud College

"I'm going with the green hair book, due to the online bundle.  We are buying a class set of books to stay in school and all homeworks etc will be set using the online bundle.  If you have enough money I think it's well worth the investment, it has fantastic resources on there for teachers as well as students, for example links to clips, online quizzes with answers to allow students to mark etc.  I think it's fab, so far everything matches up well with the Spec too (I'm as far as planning for the second paper now) so have really studied it."  Teacher posting on online teacher forum, July 2015
 

"Our students find the Year 1 DBB really useful and I have found it an excellent teaching resource." Head of Psychology, Buckinghamshire

 

AQA Psychology for A Level Year 1 & AS  Revision Guide

"This book is the eagerly awaited companion to the popular ‘green haired girl’ and also complements the revision app….lots of useful information about exam technique, assessment and key skills at the beginning of the book, which will help students to maximise their results. The practice exam questions on each double page spread are a godsend. Double bonus in that you can download answers too. I’ve recommended this book to my students."  Deb Gajic, Head of Psychology, The Polesworth School

5 out of 5 stars Amazon reviews:

"Really good for students that might be struggling to refine knowledge down to basics for AO1. Really impressed with the way the authors have shown students how to develop AO3 points. Complements the full 'green hair' book perfectly and makes revision more manageable as the content in the new spec is pretty huge."

"The breakdown of each section of the course was amazing. The evaluation points are what makes this book 5/5 stars."

"Really useful and broke down all relevant pieces of information into basics, highly recommended :) "

"Actually managed to make revision fun, good job !! Highly recommend."

 

AQA Psychology for A Level Year 2: Student Book

5 out of 5 stars Amazon reviews:

"Brilliant! Nicely laid out. A01 on the left, A03 on the right. "Apply it" examples really help you to understand the content. Brilliant visual pictures also. A very fun and engaging book to use."

"This book is very valuable for the AQA a-level course. It is full of colour and vibrant images which can help to reduce the burden revision can present. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is thinking of buying it. It is detailed with the content you need to know but concise in that it does not drag information but elaborately expands on keypoints. AO1's are found on the left and AO3's on the right plus apply it questions to give a sense of the context questions which will be asked in the exam. The first few spreads present an overview of the examinations and what they consist of as well as marks, duration and content and the end has a breakdown of the AO's"

"A great resource for A level Psychology! The pages are beautifully and clearly written with titles and subtitles that link clearly to the specification making learning and revision as easy as possible. I can't stress enough how essential this book is to doing your psychology A level!"

"Great quality, great book. It is the most useful textbook to use if you are studying A level Year 2 psychology with the AQA exam board."

 

AQA Psychology for A Level Year 2: Revision Guide

"This book is the companion to the popular ‘pink haired girl’ and also complements the revision app.  It has some useful additions to the main book which make it a very worthwhile buy.  For example, there is lots of useful information about exam technique, assessment and key skills at the beginning of the book, which will help students to maximise their results. 

I’ve recommended this book to my students and know the keen and eager ones will buy it. They will find it particularly useful as we already use the digital version as our class text."

Deb Gajic, Head of Psychology, The Polesworth School

 

5 out of 5 stars Amazon reviews:

"A really useful revision guide and a much slimmed down version of the textbook. Clearly summarised content of a frankly, too overloaded syllabus and each topic is laid out as A01 and suggested material to shape to A03 content in the familiar PEE format. There is sufficient material for a 16 mark answer on each topic without being overcomplex. I'm recommending it to my students."

"Very good"

"Best revision guide"

"Extremely helpful"

WJEC GCSE Drama DR1

WJEC AS Law Study and Revision Guide

"Can I take the opportunity to say that I think this is an absolutely brilliant book?  The concept is fantastic - I know most AS textbooks nowadays include some advice about exams and examples of questions, but the idea of getting examiners to actually explain how scripts are marked, and show the candidates what an A grade and a C or D grade answer looks like is amazing.  Louisa, Karen and Sara have done a wonderful job.  And the layout is brilliant, too - plenty of variety to keep the student's interest up while revising."  AS Law Examiner and Reviewer


5 out of 5 stars - Amazon reviews:

"This book is straightforward and helps clear the fog of the subject.  Good simple ways to improve your grade are given, as well as example answers. Great value."

"This book is a must for those studying AS Law!  It's easy to understand and gives great tips on how to improve grades."

"Excellent complete study guide for WJEC C1 and C2. As a Maths teacher, I would thoroughly recommend this to both students and teachers."

"A must have."


"This book is perfect for exam preparations as everything is clearly explained and everything is together. I have also purchased the Chemistry and Physics books, both are just as good."

"The explanations seem really clear and it focused on my WJEC course.  Lots of examples and examiner advice.  Worth getting."

"This is a fantastic book as it is aimed only at the WJEC C1 and C2 course - so you don't have to worry about the bits you don't need to learn.  I liked the way things were easily explained and the range of recent past examination questions.  I will buy the A2 book for C3 and C4!"

WJEC AS Media Studies Study and Revision Guide

"I bought a copy of WJEC AS Media Studies to see if it was a book I could suggest that students purchased as they prepared for their upcoming examination.  I was really pleased to see that it has informative and easy to read sections that focus succinctly on the controlled assessment and the examination component of the course, using relevant examples.  I especially liked the 'Exam Practice and Technique' section at the back, which gave examples of good examination answers and how they could be improved upon.  Many students purchased the book this year and those that took the WJEC AS Media Studies examination in January came to tell me how much they thought the book helped them, giving them the confident boost they needed.

I highly recommend this text as a revision aid and hope that the A2 book comes out very soon!"

Steve Baxter, Head of Media and Film, Birchwood High School


5 out of 5 stars - Amazon reviews:

"Best resource in the last 20 years.  Having taught Advanced Level Media Studies since 1990 I can categorically state that this is by far the best resource produced for this course.  It is structured, accessible and written in a style that is both supportive of students and immediately accessible to them...My Year Twelve students found it invaluable this year...thank you so much for this invaluable resource.  I would love the opportunity to shake the hand of the author for making my life so much easier."

"This is an excellent support product that fits alongside the WJEC specification and is tailor-make for its target audience.  It can be used by teachers and students to revise the appropriate aspects of the course in preparation for MS1 and MS2.  When will Christine Bell and Barbara Connell bring out the A2 Guide?"

"I would recommended this book to all AS Media students it is a very good book with every little detail included.
Best buy of the year"

 

WJEC A2 Media Studies Study and Revision Guide

"We have found the book an excellent resource for teaching the course." Media Studies Teacher, London

"It is well-laid out, very closely matched to the exam with a good choice of case studies." Head of Media Studies, Devon

"The case studies are very helpful and offer some excellent examination tips for students.  The link between AS and A2 is clear and it is helpful to have the summary of the AS course at the beginning of the A2 guide.  The students were very enthusiastic about both the AS and A2 books.  They especially liked the terminology section in the front of the AS book as it helped them to recap what they had learnt in lessons.  They also commented that it is helpful for students who are new to Media and haven't done WJEC Film Studies or equivalent."  Head of Media Studies, Crewe

"I found the book extremely useful!  I really like the fact that each text is broken down into specific sections with information and specific examples." Head of Media Studies, South Shields

WJEC AS Religious Studies Study and Revision Guide

"This 'guide' is just that - a guide - but a thoroughly comprehensive one, a Baedeker rather than a pocket guide, which points candidates in the right direction, tells them what you look for, clearly explains what they need to understand, and gives them trustworthy advice on where to go next.  Those who heed its advice will not go astray but do very well indeed."

"The authors have created a thorough, comprehensive, systematic resource, clearly expressed and packed with examples and tips that should help candidates to develop the understanding and skills necessary to get good grades.  There is no other resource that is as well matched to this specification."
