Although this material is not the most emphasized area of the exam, it surfaces enough that you should plan to spend a considerable amount of time reviewing domains that pertain to cognitive-affective bases of behavior. If you map what AATBS study sections encompass cognitive-affective bases of behavior, it would include material from the following domains: Learning theory and cognitive-behavioral interventions, social psychology, and lifespan development. This material again tends to be straight-forward and asks you to know and memorize terms, theories, and stages of development associated with this material.
One of the best ways to help manage anxiety and stress as you prepare for your test date is to know what to expect! No one likes to be faced with unanticipated surprises, especially when already in a heightened state of stress. The more you know what to expect, the more prepared you will be to perform your best on test day.
