Psych. 601
COURSE REVIEW SHEET


These are the major concepts in the course. There are others. But these constitute about 90% or more of the important material. Do not just memorize the definitions of these concepts. Use the list as a check sheet. In other words, spend time on other people and concepts only after you are thoroughly familiar with these.

The questions on the final will ask you to apply these concepts, to compare them, to relate them to other units, to identify examples. Go back and reread those sections with which you are unfamiliar. Use the index to see how they are covered in various units. Be sure you have done the True-False questions and changed false to true, those which deal with these concepts. Make a flow chart showing how these people and concepts are related.
