knowledge is power
This web page, hosted by a collective of psychology-related information sites, provides an arena for A-level psychologists in particular to further their knowledge of basic theoretical and research-related concepts in psychology. The site includes a glossary, a book store, links to news feeds, and individual articles on topics such as Asperger’s syndrome. This site should be useful for teachers and A-Level Psychology students.
