Description - Study Skills for Psychology Students by Sylvie Collins
"The problem with the first year was I didn't know what I didn't know, and even when I thought there was something I was supposed to know I didn't know what to do about it." This quote from a perplexed undergraduate student illustrates the plight of many first-years who feel overwhelmed by the demands made on them at university, combined with the expectation of lecturers and tutors that they will already know how to study independently. 'Study Skills for Psychology Students' is a light-hearted yet comprehensive guide to studying psychology at university. Covering topics such as using the library and other resources, making effective notes in lectures and successful revision skills, the authors provide a practical guide to help the new student get the most out of their psychology course. Finally, in addition to the generic information needed by all students embarking on a degree course, 'Study Skills for Psychology Students' includes psychology specific material on Ethics, Professional Data Acquisition and Interviewing Skills.
