Do we have to know the exact order of the NREM/REM cycle stages? My textbook isn't quite clear in terms of the order and I can't find any on the internet besides diagrams (which appear to be different from what's given in my textbook (Oxford))

Well, roughly

NREM 1 --> NREM  2 --> NREM  3 --> NREM  4 --> NREM 3 --> NREM  2 --> REM --> NREM 1 --> NREM  2 ... (and so on)

I'm pretty sure VCE Psych still retains the NREM 3/4 distinction (although it's been a while since I've done it myself - I did get a chance to read one of the new study design descriptions).

How well do you need to memorise definitions? Do you need to regurgitate the words from a book or is a general definition fine ? .. because i find it difficult to remember every single definition word for word but i 'know' it .... hmmm :S

Thanks for the reply! But just wondering, when you say "which can be eliminated" do you mean that extraneous variables can still be eliminated even when results are obtained? Or can they only be eliminated BEFORE the study/experiment is conducted?

Since extranneous variables can have an unwanted effect on the results, they would have to be eliminated before the experiment. Once the results have been obtained, the damage is done :P
From my understanding anyway :)
