Given Information:  50 multiple-choice questions 
20% of the test is from Lectures 1-5 
80% of the test is from lectures 6-9 
 
30% from readings 
65% from lectures  
5% from homework 
 
 
* This study guide contains key terms form lecture 6-9 as well as study tips. (The definitions 
are in the notes.  This document has been designed to help you in a guided study, not to tell 
all the answers.)  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
background image Study Tips     
 
1.  Get plenty of sleep. Science has shown that sleep helps create memory while you sleep. 
How do you expect to remember everything the night before the test if you don’t sleep and 
engrave it all in your brain? Space out your studying and make you get sleep in order to 
make those new connections so you can do great on your next Psychology midterm! 
  
2.    Eat  a  good  meal  before  the  midterm.    PSY  202  is  in  the  afternoon,  so  it’s  easier,  but  if  it  
were  8am,  taking  it  without  eating  is  the  worst  idea  ever.    Your  brain  uses  carbs  to  run  and  
by  the  time  the  night  is  over,  you’ve  run  through  your  usable  stores  and  then  you’re  asking  
your  brain  to  run  on  empty.  
 
3.  Make flashcards.  People tend to read something and think, “I know that,” “I can 
remember that,” or “that’s easy.”  But do you actually know it?  If you do, then flashcards 
are no bid deal.  IF you don’t they are a good way to determine what you do from what you 
do, and can help you focus on what you actually need to study
 
4.  Keep notecards with you at all times.  If you’re waiting in line at Common Grounds or 
just are board, having some flashcards in your pocket can come in handy.  If you learn five 
to ten terms well, you can switch them out when you get home.  You’ll memorize your 
entire stack in no time, and not have to spend massive blocks of time doing it! 
 
5.  Study how you will be taking the test.  PSY 202 is a big lecture hall and likely people will 
be moving around/coughing/dropping things, the list goes on.  If you know that you’re 
going to be distracted, study with people around and practice psychology when there’s a 
little distraction.  It’s no use studying in the quietest corner of the library when the test is 
going to be nothing like it.  Get comfortable with the atmosphere you’ll be put in for the 
midterm. 
 
Take a deep breath.  It’s no use working yourself up when you could be concentrating on  studying or doing something productive.  The more you worry, the less time you spend  preparing, and then you really should be worried.  Everyone is in the same boat as you; we  all have the same lecture slides, the same books, and the same homework.  You’re in this  school, in this particular class for a reason; someone thought you could do it.    And you can.
