DD307 Revision Pack 2014/15

 

The DD307 revision pack was written in response to students who asked me for extra help with their revision and exam. Please note that there are many ways to revise for an exam and my approach may not be shared by members of the module team or other tutors. The pack is not a replacement for your own notes but should be seen as a guide to helping you structure your revision and consolidate the materials. My motive is not to make profit and after expenses are paid I support several charities.  These include sponsoring children through Worldwide Vision and making regular contributions to Cancer Research UK, the World Wide Fund for Nature, Battersea Dog’s Home and The National Park Trust.


The pack is 100 pages and printed in full colour. It is expensive to print but each of the exam sections are colour-coded to help with clarity. There are also colour illustrations to help you remember things!  It includes:


                        ~ A ten-step suggested revision plan

                        ~ An overview of the main historical debates in Social Psychology

                        ~ How to develop critical skills and a ‘stance of productive scepticism’                                               

                        ~ A summary of the interrogative themes and four main theoretical perspectives

                        ~ An overview of the 4 exam sections

                        ~ A summary of each chapter

                        ~ Exam-type questions for each chapter

                        ~ Revision and examination advice and tips


Student Feedback (and thanks to those people who have sent it)


“Your revision pack was fantastic - I don't know what I would have done without it, so thank you! And a BIG thank you for your valuable guidance throughout the course, your TMA comments and an inspirational attitude towards social psychology”. A.E.


“I am thrilled to let you know that I got distinction as an overall course result! WOW! I honestly was mega nervous, particularly in my ‘expecting’ state I would not like to have to preoccupy myself with a re-sit.” T.Y.


“I have enjoyed the course tremendously, mainly thanks to your enthusiasm and invaluable advice. Your guidance led me to better and better results”. V.B.


“I just wanted to let you know, I received my Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Psychology on Thursday from the OU, I was awarded an Upper Second-class Honours (2.1).  Although a first would have been nice, all things considered I am very pleased and immensely proud.” S.Y.


“ I thought I'd drop you another line because you really, really are responsible for my Distinction in Social Psych.  I'd have managed a First (in Psychology) even with a Pass 2 in Social but it was much  much nicer ending my four year degree with another (but very unexpected) Distinction!  D.D.


“Just a short note to say how brilliant the revision pack was.  I just found out that I got 82% in the exam and I only used your notes so thank you very much.  Thoroughly recommended!” G.R.


“The study pack you produced was fun, extremely relevant and helped to map out all of the stages in the study process (which I would not have had time to cover otherwise, but which were essential to an overall understanding of the subject), as well as helping me see where the various authors were going with their arguments - 'scaffolding' if you like!  I found the images you used very memorable and the sample exam questions both thought-provoking and extremely relevant.  You obviously put a huge amount of time and effort into producing the pack, something I am extremely grateful for.  I hope you raise all the funds you need for the project in Zimbabwe.” G.C.


“ After attending your revision weekend I understood things much more fully and scored 82% in the exam,  I needed to get a grade 2 for DD307 to get a First Class degree in Psychology and thanks to you, I got one!”. W.S.

I am a tutor, not a business woman, so please forgive me if I can’t offer a wide range of payment services. After negative experiences I can no longer accept bank transfers, transfers from finance companies, nor Paypal. However postal orders, Stirling bank drafts and Euros paid in cash have always arrived safely. If you don’t have a cheque book you might be able to get a friend or relative to sign one for you. Most banks will also issue cheques in Stirling. Please do not send by registered post.  I am often not at home to sign for it and registered mail might be returned undelivered. Normally allow two weeks for delivery. Orders sent within three weeks of the exam will be processed as soon as possible, usually within two days.
