Preparation for Psych Exam

What ways/resources do you guys recommend for preparing for the exam for Psych?
I have Checkpoint, ATARNotes Topic Tests, NEAP Smartstudy Questions, The Psych Book and my textbook. Are these resources good for the exam preparation and are there any other resources that could help?
Thanks

That sounds like plenty of resources to me. How exactly you prepare from here depends on where you're up to but completing lots of exam style questions and making sure I could improve and redo each one I got wrong was something that really helped me out :)

I also spent a lot of time on the forums hanging out answering questions and explaining things to people as a way of getting more exposure and thinking about the content in different ways but that's a bit dependent on other people asking questions and/or you having enough time to put together answers and resources. Teaching others is huge for me when I'm trying to consolidate knowledge but who and how I "teach" didn't make that much difference.

I recommend trying to learn from your SACs and previous mistakes to figure out what you need to target most.


I hope this helps!

Start practice exams!

Which companies are best? I’ve done every single vcaa question relevant to this study design since 2002 throughout the year and I don’t think I’ll go back and do them except maybe the 2017-2019 ones under timed conditions. I have access to psyched, aced and NEAP and many more once school starts again.....are these any good?
I was previously known as “CoolgalborninLo” I’m sure you’ve seen me sauntering around the forums.

The good
1. Insight is the BEST
2. ACED is usually good
The not so great:
3. NEAP (usually ask poorly worded questions
4. QAT/STAV
5. TSSM (overall provide poor papers)
