It's considered a pseudo rate law because the if the normal rate law is Rate=k*A*B*C, we have to change the concentrations of B and C to see how A affects the rate. So under the assumption that B and C are in excess and are constants, we use the psuedo rate law Rate=kprime*A, where kprime=k*B*C. I think we use the pseudo rate law because it is easier to work with the equation Rate=kprime*A than Rate=k*A*B*C.
