Yeah, it would have been a good idea had I read the text book during the Summer hols. But I read it as we studied each chapter in class - hence the stress :P (Unit 3 is highly packed and you need to rush a lot towards the end)

is unit 3 really have more stuff than unit 4 in chem?
i didn't think that unit 3 was that intense, it doesn't seem like there's very much that's too complicated and difficult to get through.

I'm not sure if this is correct, but someone at my school said that the VCAA examiners don't look for textbook answers, especially responses which are word-for-word from the textbook =/ any clarification please? It would help a lot thanks! :)

I was told that definitions had to be word for word from the text book. But I agree, most VCAA questions aren't simple definition questions - you need to apply concepts to questions. Thus a text book answer wouldn't always be appropriate. That said, it may be handy to memorise phrases from the text book, like the information on echoic memory processes because it might come in use for you in an exam explanation question.

Thank you, and yes what you have said all makes sense :) was just curious to why someone told me that word-for-word answers lose you marks...

You'll be studying parts of chapter 1, all of chapters 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 (until you finish the Sleep chapter).

So the whole book over the whole year. I thought it was one chapter for each AoS. -_-

Can you break down chapters into Areas of Study for me please?

Well the chapters on brain&nervous system including arousal (should have the most as it's worth 40% of unit 3) are area of study 1, then visual perception system chapters are area of study 2 and finally states of consciousness incl. all the sleep stuff is area of study 3.
look at the study design for unit 3 and you'll see for each AoS is some research methods stuff, either just take whats needed from each AoS from someone who did well's notes or find it in chapter 1.
