What kind of theories should I study?

It says for the first FRQ it will be about applying theories, so what kind of theories should I study? Specific psychologist’s theories? Or more of Biological or psychoanalytical theories?

The first FRQ will be concept application. Typically, it will give you a scenario about someone doing something and then ask you to relate vocab terms to the situation. Here is an example:
Rachel is preparing to be a lead in the school play. Explain how the following concepts will help her in preparing:
-context dependent memory
-distributed practice

So it isn’t necessarily theories, it is knowing the vocab terms. The terms could come from any of the units 1-7.
