Psych Terms

Postby aegnanakan » Thu Jun 14, 2018 6:03 pm

I'm struggling to memorize all the psych & soc terms. I've looked online for quizlets that are made by other people which have been helpful.

Two questions:
1) other than passage practice what is the most beneficial study strategy?
2) Should I buy the official AAMC flashcards for psych?

If you find that you’re struggling with the memorization of terms, something I recommend to students is to create an “outline” of a chapter, with all the major section headings but none of the details, and then try to fill that in from memory. After you’re done, compare the outline to the book, see what you got right and got wrong, and repeat the process.

Additionally, I think it’s generally more effective to make your own notecards rather than using someone else’s, but that’s a smaller piece of advice.

Hope that helps!
