The Ultimate Social Science Reviewer

Last Updated on 03/01/2021 by FilipiKnowOpens in a new tab.

How well do you know yourself and the society you’re living in? Why do we act the way we do?

These are just some of the questions that social science can answer.

As a group of disciplines, social science is designed to give us a deeper insight into our society. It can influence how we make laws, understand each other, and deal with issues of equality and diversity.

This social science reviewer is divided into three equally important subjects: Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology.

Whether you’re a lifetime student of social sciences or someone preparing for LET, NMAT, and other major exams, this compiled reviewer has something to offer you.

Part I: Sociology and Anthropology.

Sociology, being the mother of all social sciences, involves a wide range of interesting topics—from how societies are formed, how structures and cultural patterns evolve throughout history, how these things affect our lives today, and how its directions are continuously shaped by individuals. 

This reviewer focuses on the fundamentals of sociology as a discipline, such as the basic perspectives on looking at society, its essential elements, and the different social institutions and the roles they play. 

A primer on anthropology as a branch of social science is also included.
