How I did It- Psychology notes!!!


I am pleased to share my psychology  notes. I had scored 249 in psycho (one of the highest).Notes of paper 2 shall follow soon.

How to use these
1) Please use them only as ADD ONs and not as your mainstay of psycho prep. There is NO substitute to textbooks like Baron, Ciccarelli etc
2) The Doc files are the most important files. Read other files (pdfs etc) only when you have sufficient time.
3)Key: CIC means Ciccarelli, PM=printed material, CN=class notes,Baron=Baron, Morgan=Morgan and King

Here is the link: https:

  1. Thanks a lot for sharing your notes, it will be of great help. Thanks once again

    PS It would be better if you share your sources for topic in Psychology, in that way we aspirants will be in better condition to appreciate your notes and can prepare on the lines of sources specified by you.

    1. Paper1 : Baron, Morgan, Ciccarelli, Pathak Sir's notes-class notes and printed material+ lot of internet research, NCERTs
      Paper2: Smarak Swain, Encyclopedia of Applied Psychollogy, Pathak Sir's notes-class notes and printed material+ lot of internet research, NCERTs
