AP Psychology is a course dedicated to the systematic and scientific study of human behavior and mental processes. Students explore the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major subfields within psychology. Additionally, students examine and assess multiple approaches adopted by psychologists, including biological, behavioral, cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic and sociocultural. The course culminates in students taking the Advanced Placement exam in May.
Here are some important links to help you on your journey:
Worth Publishers (the people who made your textbook) have some free and open resources here.
They also created Power Point Presentations for every unit; go here for a folder with all them! (Actually, it turns out the internal links--to the definitions--are broken; to utilize the full Power Points, including definitions, scroll to the bottom, and download the presentations from there. You'll need Power Point, however, to open and use them.)
They have also created the very cool PsychSim program, so that you can see certain concepts firsthand.
The AP Psychology Commune offers some great practice tests (they even auto-grade)!
Sparknotes also has a good practice test (it's 50 questions, reflecting all units from the book--like a mini AP test).
The College Board has several sample FRQs here (with grading rubrics for each).
And check out this great YouTube channel dedicated to Psych review.
And here's the College Board's general "Want to Score a 5?" section.
Go here to take an unofficial (but still very similar) Myers Briggs type indicator.
And this one is the Big Five (Trait Perspective) inventory.
Type A/Type B Personality Test is here.
Below, you'll find uploaded attachments for the course syllabus, assignments, and more. They're all in PDF format, so you'll need Acrobat Reader to open them: http://get.adobe.com/reader.
STUDENTS: If you haven't already, go here to setup your school Google Aps/Gmail account.
And go here for a great site, filled with sample multiple choice test questions (practice makes prefect...well, better at least).
