OCR Psychology, Third Edition, is endorsed by OCR for use with the OCR AS Psychology specification.

This book prepares students for all elements of the OCR Psychology AS exam. It covers both research methods and core studies, giving the who, what, where, and even the why of each study. It also looks at some of the work that followed the studies. Key features of the book include:

  • 'Psychological Investigations': the first chapter of the book helps students to understand research methods in psychology – useful support for the Psychological Investigations exam and for understanding the core studies themselves.
  • Core Studies: each study is described first ‘In a Nutshell’, followed by a detailed account of the aims, method, results and conclusions. Guidance is given on how each study can be evaluated and a wealth of extra materials is provided for each study – questions to assess understanding, practical activities, multiple choice and exam-style questions, further reading and video links.
  • Background to each core study is included in the ‘Starters’ and ‘Afters’ features: information about related research before and after the study; and biographical details of the researcher(s).
  • Approaches, perspectives, issues and methods are considered in a brand-new chapter to cover the themes of the course and prepare students for the long-answer questions on the Core Studies exam.
  • Exam guidance: each chapter ends with short- and long-answer exam-style questions answered by students with teacher feedback.

The book is presented in colourful and well-structured magazine-style spreads to aid the learning process. This 3rd edition has been completely revised, and is now accompanied by a companion website featuring an extensive range of online resources for both teachers and students, including answers to the questions posed in the book, glossary flash-cards, and multiple-choice test banks.

About the Author:

Philip Banyard is Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Nottingham Trent University. He has been involved in GCSE and A Level psychology for more years than he can count and has marked more exam papers than he has brain cells left.

Cara Flanagan is an experienced teacher and senior A Level examiner. She has written a wide range of articles and textbooks for A Level Psychology students, as well as editing the Foundations of Psychology Series (Routledge) with Philip Banyard. Her home is in the Scottish Highlands where she can write while enjoying the glorious landscape.

Review:

Praise for the second edition:

"This book is a truly excellent resource which will be invaluable to anyone taking OCR AS Psychology. It is well written, well organised, comprehensive, and easy to read. I just wish it had been available when I was a student! In short, a must-have and a must-read." - Professor Mark Griffiths, Psychology Division, Nottingham Trent University

"The book captures the important sense of wonder about psychology.... It manages to emphasize the importance of skepticism and science while all the while keeping an eye on the bigger picture. This book makes a significant contribution to the standing of psychology by reaching out in a very appealing way to a wide audience." - Elizabeth F. Loftus, Distinguished Professor, University of California, Irvine
