[QUOTE=Shehryar Nisar Khan;974702]I am thinking to switch sociology with psychology, as i got only 35 marks in the former. I went through psychology(200 marks) past papers and found the course of Paper-2 somewhat difficult. And they have given 3 questions from the paper-2 portion in 2016 paper.
First, what book would you recommend for psychology, especially the area previously covered by paper-2?
Second, there are questions regarding disorders and therapies in the past papers, are they included in the new course as well? And if they are included, would we be able to prepare them through the book?[/QUO

I read only one book Introduction to Psychology Atkinson & Hilgard’s,
Fredrickson, B. Since the subjects is now converted into 100 marks but the contents are the same (Actually some extra things are also added). I would suggest for disorders though properly covered by the above mentioned book, I still watched videos on youtube "Crash course channel" and lectures of foreign professors.

Two sources
1) Book "introduction to psychology by Atkinson & Hilgard’s,
Fredrickson, B

2) Youtube videos

My strategy was to used headings and diagrams to explain my view. Like for the question on central nervous system i actually drew a neuron & brain for further clarification
(I am very bad at drawings but still managed to get it right)

4) Questions are more or less ratta type with some conceptual one's
Listen syllabus is like pure science subjects, i mean theories sy related answers tau nai likny hoty as in socio? I am a doctor n i am not liking theory related anwering thing. IR is enough for that waisay bhi
