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"


AQA Psychology for A Level Year 1 & AS Flashbook

“This handy pocket sized Flashbook is a fabulous revision aid to supplement the excellent and much loved ‘green haired girl’ book, and is well within the price range of students. There is a double sized flashcard for each bullet point on the specification.  One side is split into AO1 and AO3 and the other side has multiple choice questions to check knowledge. It also includes links to the relevant pages in the textbook so students can revisit any gaps in their knowledge.

When I showed these to my students they were very impressed and felt they would really help them with their revision.  In fact one student was so keen I gave her my inspection copy. Overall, an excellent addition to your students’ revision repertoire."

Deb Gajic (CPsychol, AFBPsS), Head of Psychology, The Polesworth School

"Fabulous! Just what I needed to help with this new spec. Full of useful advice and crucial tips to succeed."

"This book is full of very practical resources, excellent teaching suggestions, pupil friendly exam speak, sample responses, and some brilliant guidance on the set texts for the written exam.

My favourite thing is the quotes from theatre practitioners that run through the book, supporting both performing and design students with something I've not seen elsewhere."

5 out of 5 star Amazon reviews:

"This book was a great help whilst I was completing my EPQ.  Each stage had examples of previous projects and I found this particularly helpful when writing my own report.  It also gave guidance on how to set out your report and all the planning stages too.  I would recommend this book for anyone completing the EPQ."

OCR Geology for A Level & AS

"Modern textbooks have to serve at least three masters, each wanting something different, but the authors of the new 'Geology for A level & AS' have done a remarkable job. Teachers are given clear summaries of current theories, many of which have only reached consensus in the last decade, in a book that supports their teaching rather than undermining it. Students are given an accessible reference book, that gives coverage of OCR A level, but in a way that allows students to explore the content, appreciate wider applications and consider areas for stretch and challenge. For those just interested in teaching themselves geology or undergraduates looking for an all in one primer this book does the job; bang up-to-date, comprehensive coverage and an arresting visual presentation.
This edition is a complete revision that make it usable as an introductory text for any geology student, and for other specifications including Eduqas/WEJEC.
It is particularly pleasing to find diagrams and summaries from contemporary review papers and university textbooks. The authors have completely revised visual material too and they have done an excellent job in trimming away the fat to replace it with prime content. There is a lot in these 320 pages and it certainly rewards rereading and casting an eye back to enrich their understanding as students progress in their learning."

Theories are explained concisely without over-simplification and with clear application to the study texts. The book is also attractive and readable. One of the plusses of the limited new A level specification is that this book will remain current for at least a couple of years. I've ordered a class-room set and am insisting all my students buy a copy. This is the first time I've ever done this in thirty years of media and film teaching!” Amazon 5-star review
