Distinction Motivation and Emotion Notes (Detailed with Diagrams)

182 pages

32,493 words




I received 84 in this unit using only these notes. The last notes I purchased were a few years old and was missing lectures I needed, so be sure to read through my topic list below before purchasing! These notes have detailed diagrams/tables, both from the lectures and external sources, AND includes a glossary at the end of each lecture with good-to-know terms. Each term that is defined is highlighted through the lecture (underlined and italicised).

I found this unit very interesting but also incredibly difficult to keep up with, so make sure you stay on top of it!
