How do I review for my Psychology A final exam?
- Shmoop, Shmoop, Shmoop!!! If you have not already enrolled in Shmoop, now is the time to do so (see graphic below if you don't know how). You can take a diagnostic test in Shmoop to see where you really need to focus in your studies. Again, this is also a great tool to review for the AP exam in May.
- Review all missed items from your unit m/c exams and FRQs. (See image below if you don't know how to do this.)
- Check out the resources in the LINKS section of your course and in course news items.
- Review your e text resources such as vocabulary in the margins, graphics, and chapter summaries.
- Review course content and learning objects for practice.
