Now in full colour, this thoroughly revised and updated 3rd edition of Psychology for AS Level takes into account all the latest changes to the AQA-A syllabus since the last edition was published. It remains closely mapped to the specification making it ideal for students taking the AS Level Psychology exam. New to this edition is a strong emphasis on exam technique, giving students the best chance possible of the highest grades. A whole chapter is devoted to how to study and how to pass, with an 'Examiner's Viewpoint' written by the Chief Examiner at AQA-A. Throughout the book are hints and tips on picking up marks, and there are constant page references to the summarised content in our companion AS revision guide. Further examination support is provided by our accompanying student website, AS Online, available on a subscription basis to all schools and sixth form colleges that adopt the text. This includes a Student Workbook, interactive exercises, sample essays, interactive multiple-choice questions, a complete Exam Companion and much more. We also provide teacher resources free of charge to qualifying adopters which include a week-by-week teaching plan, sample essays, chapter-by-chapter lecture presentations, and classroom exercises and activities. Please see http://www.a-levelpsychology.co.uk/online for further details of these resources and a demo chapter of AS Online. The book includes coverage of six key areas in psychology: human memory, attachments in development, stress, abnormality, social influence and research methods. It retains the thorough content, volume of features and excellent writing style of previous editions but the layout is now fully structured to improve accessibility. Unlike other A-Level textbooks which focus solely on passing the exam, ‘Psychology for AS Level’ is also designed to foster an interest in the study of psychology as a subject. To this end, the book includes an additional general chapter to introduce the theories and explanations that make psychology a fascinating discipline.

Der Nr.1-Bestseller aus den USA: Wie man in einer von Chaos und Irrsinn regierten Welt bei Verstand bleibt! Wie können wir in der modernen Welt überleben? Jordan B. Peterson beantwortet diese Frage humorvoll, überraschend und informativ. Er erklärt, warum wir Kinder beim Skateboarden alleine lassen sollten, welches grausame Schicksal diejenigen ereilt, die alles allzu schnell kritisieren und warum wir Katzen, die wir auf der Straße antreffen, immer streicheln sollten. Doch was bitte erklärt uns das Nervensystem eines Hummers über unsere Erfolgschancen im Leben? Und warum beteten die alten Ägypter die Fähigkeit zu genauer Beobachtung als höchste Gottheit an? Dr. Peterson diskutiert Begriffe wie Disziplin, Freiheit, Abenteuer und Verantwortung und kondensiert Wahrheit und Weisheit der Welt in 12 praktischen Lebensregeln. »12 Rules For Life« erschüttert die Grundannahmen von moderner Wissenschaft, Glauben und menschlicher Natur. Dieses Buch verändert Ihr Leben garantiert!

Unterhaltend und fundiert: Ein Pageturner über die Hirnforschung Die Hirnforschung macht rasante Fortschritte, aber nur selten treten wir einen Schritt zurück und fragen uns, was es heißt, ein Lebewesen und Mensch zu sein. Der renommierte Neurowissenschaftler David Eagleman nimmt uns mit auf die Reise durch das Gewirr aus Milliarden von Hirnzellen und Billionen von Synapsen – und zu uns selbst. Das sonderbare Rechengewebe in unserem Schädel ist der Apparat, mit dem wir uns in der Welt orientieren, Entscheidungen treffen und Vorstellungen entwickeln. Seine unendlich vielen Zellen bringen unser Bewusstsein und unsere Träume hervor. In diesem Buch baut Bestsellerautor David Eagleman eine Brücke zwischen der Hirnforschung und uns, den Besitzern eines Gehirns. Er hilft uns, uns selbst zu verstehen. Denn ein besseres Verständnis unseres inneren Kosmos wirft auch ein neues Licht auf unsere persönlichen Beziehungen und unser gesellschaftliches Zusammenleben: wie wir unser Leben lenken, warum wir lieben, was wir für wahr halten, wie wir unsere Kinder erziehen, wie wir unsere Gesellschaftspolitik verbessern und wie wir den menschlichen Körper auf die kommenden Jahrhunderte vorbereiten können.
