More Review Resources

Mr. Schallhorn, an AP Psych teacher in California, put together a great set of YouTube videos you can use to review for AP Psych. His YouTube channel is at the following address. 

You also have your AP Review Books, your Bernstein Study Guides, your PsykTrek CDs and the thousands of flashcards and pages of notes you've created this year.

Mr. Jones, and AP Psych teacher from North Carolina told me that students are using Twitter this year in their AP Psych review.

"...if a student has a question about AP Psych, they can just type the question on Twitter and put this at the end of the tweet:  #appsychreview  

For those of you who are old hats at Twitter, you’ll recognize #appsychreview as a hashtag – it’s a way to group together tweets with a common theme. Anyone can then assist the student with their question – it could be a AP Psych teacher, a professor, or even a fellow AP Psych student. I’ve asked a few AP teachers to help out, but we would love your help. If you are familiar with Twitter and you would like to help out with answering questions, it’s probably easiest to set up a separate search for #appsychreview or just bookmark this link:!/search/realtime/appsychreview ."

I've never used Twitter this way, but it's worth a try, and I'm going to start following #appsychreview.

Keep in mind that these will mostly be other students answering questions, so it's not as authoritative as a textbook or other edited resource.

As you find other resources, please e-mail them to me at ptdworkin-cantor at or post them in the comments section of this post.

Do you like electronic flash-cards? Do you use Apps? You might like which has tons of electronic flash-cards and even a smartphone app. Just type "psychology" into the search box (I want to learn "this") and go for it. You can sign on to get a free account using your facebook account or any e-mail account.

You can find other psych based apps at There are also links to Android apps there. Some are free, some cost money. Check the reviews carefully before spending your cash.
