On the test day, I was surprised by how easy the exam was. I was even more surprised when I checked my score in July and saw that I had received a 4. I attribute my passing score to the Barron’s book (though I’m sure that watching 14 seasons of Law and Order SVU also helped). Now I’m not saying to wait until three or two days before the exam to buy one, but if you had a Psychology class like mines, then a prep book will really help. If you study it little by little, or read it as a supplement when you are done with a chapter in class, it can help clarify things. It also helps you review chapters that you covered in the beginning of the year. Instead of having to re-read a 50-70 page chapter, you can quickly review it in the prep books. If you can’t afford a prep book, most libraries have copies that they let students borrow.
