How do I prepare for exams?

Looking at past exam papers is a good idea, as these give you a sense of the kinds of open-ended exam questions that you are likely to encoutner in your exam. However, note that previous exams were only based on open-ended questions (essays) and therefore the answers were expected to be longer and more elaborate.

Normally, making sure that you are familiar with all the material covered in the lectures is suggested. If there is some material that is either especially relevant or less relevant, your lecturer will tell you about this. Also make sure you are familiar with the suggested reading.

Note that multiple-choice questions are based on all lectures, whereas open-ended questions do not cover the "Doing and communicating psychology" series.
