The Extending Knowledge and Skills series is a fresh approach to A Level Psychology, designed for greater demands of the new AQA specification and assessment, and especially written to stretch and challenge students aiming for higher grades.

Dealing with the AQA's Paper 3: Forensic Psychology, this book is deliberately laid out with the assessment objectives in mind, from AO1: Knowledge and understanding material, followed by AO2: Application material, to AO3: Evaluation and analysis material. Providing the most in-depth, accessible coverage available of individual topics in Paper 3, the text is packed full of pedagogical features, including:

  • Question Time features to ensure that the reader is consistently challenged throughout the book.
  • New research sections clearly distinguished within each chapter to ensure readers have access to the most cutting-edge material.
  • A clear focus on the assessment objectives for the Paper topic to ensure readers know when and where to apply knowledge.
  • The use of example answers with examiner style comments to provide greater insight into how to/how not to answer exam questions.

An engaging, relevant and challenging text which broadens student understanding beyond that of the average textbook, this is the essential companion for any student taking the AQA A Level Paper 3 in Psychology.
