Unit 15 - Psychological Disorders

NOTE: the AP exam is coming up in May… It is time to start using your 5 Steps to a 5 AP Psych Prep book and do some reviewing in addition to completing the weekly assignments.

Reading assignment:
Bernstein Text Chapter 15 Pp. 575-627
Read and take Cornell Notes

Bernstein Study Guide Chapter 15 Starts on P. 433
(You will be graded for completing and correcting them, not for how many you got right.)
1. Skim outline and key terms: Pp. 433-442– Make sure you know underlined terms and that they are in your notes. -- Note examples and mnemonics
2. In your notes, do Fill-In-The-Blanks on P. 443 Write the question and answer it without looking at the book or your notes. Then check your answers. For each wrong answer, write the correct answer and be sure the information is in your notes.
3. Do BOTH multiple choice sample quizzes that start on P. 447 Do quiz 1 first check and correct it, review the notes then do quiz 2 and check it. Remember, the goal is to find out what you know vs. what you don’t know, and then review so you know it all.
