Mock Test #2 - High Scores

Good job. Hang in there. Keep working on figuring out the things you are not certain about. Even a score of a 50% at this point is OK. Improve it by 10-15% by test day and you are good. Also remember that each point on the FRQ is important. Don't take them for granted. You have to prove you understand it.

Very proud of the work you have done this year. It has been a challenging year, but you have risen to meet it. I still believe this will be our finest year when the test results roll in during the month of July.

Mock Test #1 - 2018 Spring

Great job on the first Mock Test this spring. 

Mock Test #1 was the day after our test over the last two chapters. So, you didn't really get much time to study for it. We have been working on corrections and I'm hopeful to see some improvement on the next Mock Test on Thursday.

Compared to the Fall Semester Mock test, this was incredible!
You guys scored higher over a full year than you did for only the material over the first semester. Impressive!

These are great scores on the Multiple Choice. Way to go!

2. There are many types of disorders, but they all involve debilitation that makes routine life situations difficult.
3. Schizophrenia is not dissociative identity disorder. It is a disorder that involves a break with reality and auditory hallucinations.
4. Personality disorders are the most difficult disorders to diagnose and treat. The most common treatment is medication (most have side effects).
5. Medication is effective as a treatment, but it is often combined with a form of “talk therapy” to provide a more complete therapeutic technique.
6. Behavioral and cognitive therapists are very popular forms of “talk therapy.”
7. Freudian therapy, though well known, is not utilized much anymore.
