Format: Paperback
I have bought 4 books on Cognitive Psychology and this one is the best so far! It is easy to read. Whereas I find some other books use too much academical language and make me read every page 3X before I understand what is meant this one is very clear and understandable. Every sector in each chapter has its own summary which makes everything even easier to memorize. The only thing I wish was that there would be a clear evaluation after each sector. For this I still use Eysenck and Keane.

This book is very interesting. It helped me a lot in learning about basic cognitive psychology and basic knowledge in psychology as a whole. i would recommend this alongside the handbook that comes as an addition.

This was one of the texts recommended for our Psychology of Thinking module and I am delighted I bought it. Various subject experts have introduced and developed their topics engagingly, with stimulating questions and activities. In addition, each chapter includes a selection of items for further reading, with short explanations of why a particular item has been chosen. I found this very valuable. The book also has a consistent and pleasant colour scheme for each of the five parts and chapter sections, which I appreciated.
I would recommend this text to any student interested in understanding the topics and issues of the Psychology of Thinking or Cognitive Psychology.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Schopenhauer’s ghost on 28 Feb. 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a companion to the Open University Cognitive Psychology module. If you do the course, you get a copy with the course materials. I bought my own copy to start reading before the course started, and wish I'd saved my money.
As a textbook, it does not bear comparison with the definitive work by Eysenck and Keane; this volume is far too `wordy' and succeeds in making some topics utterly incomprehensible. For example, I learnt logic at senior school level 30 years ago, and I'm sure I could give a better account than the one presented here.

I gave up on this book and used only Eysenck (and Andrade and May's `instant notes'), and got a level 1 pass. If I had stuck with this text, I'm sure my result would have been poorer.

Finally, If you are a student with a `global' learning style, this one is definitely not for you - each topic is developed in an entirely piecemeal manner, with no real sense of flow. Very disappointing, especially given the cost.

This book is of great value to a final year undergraduate. It is of great importance in experimental cognitive psychology and is a fantistic guide for those of you who want to do research in cognitive processes.
