A.) & B.) Health Psychology has to be the most interesting topic from the many divisions of the APA.

I personally tried it myself with my next test. Basically it is a method where they give you 5 ways that you can improve the way that you study. It’s processing information in all the possible ways such by surveying ,asking questions, reading, retrieving, and reviewing. It is a way of highlight or getting imprtoant facts and ideas from the course your are examining over.

*SURVEY, is by going through the books and notes and looking over the topic, main ideas, and headers. You can also look at pictures of graphs over the section you are reading. You can look at a study guide also.
* QUESTION. You can do this by changing the topic into a question and think about it as you read or review. Try to answer it your self and then relate that to the answer you found in the reading. Think about questions you would like to know that you don’t already about the topic. *READ. Try not to overwhelm yourself with reading to much at time. Your more likely to confuse yourself by doing so. Read section by section, highlighting the main ideas and vocabulary, doing a practice test, having opinons about the context that your are studying for. Pay attention to the main points, bold words or things that are underlined. Try to answer the questions that you asked before

I think I will get extra information even after I am done testing. I know I will not be studying all over the place but I will be managing my time wisely by using these methods. Maybe my questions I asked my self about the topics will be on the
