VEry useful book for my first year cognition lectures, and it's been recommended as a core text for 2nd year aswell. Readable, and not too complex to understand.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Sean OToole on 16 Oct. 2009
Format: Paperback
This was a recommended text for my cognitive psychology course, and it was most definitely a great boon to the work that I had to do in that course, as it contained a lot of information in easy to follow chapters. However, the book fell into the psychology cliché of being bland and monotonous, and not always easy to understand.

This book makes an excellent reference guide for specific theories on cognitive areas of psychology, and is best taken one section at a time, and in light of this wil be a very useful tool for any cognitive psychology module, be it on memory, perception or other areas.

This book should be a very good guide to the topic and certainly contains lots of interesting studies, research and theories. However the writing style is impossibly difficult to follow and too many terms are used without explanation only adding to the confusion. More diagrams would have been very useful as the authors try to, unsuccessfully, describe experiments with words when pictures would have been better. If I wrote my uni assignments like this book I would be failing.

Format: Paperback
Essential but difficult
Although I think this book is useful because it contains a clear evaluation of each section and a glossary at the end of the book, I think the writing style is quit complicated and doesn't really invite me to read any further then necessary.

this book was ok, nothing great. Did not explain things very clearly and it was a tough topic too. I only bought it as it was recommended by course.

A recommended textbook for my undergraduate course. The information presented is very useful and fits in well with my course. However, I find the textbook to be very text heavy and hard to read. There is nothing wrong with the book as such, but I think it's more to do with my personal preference.

I had to buy this book as it was on my required reading list for the cognitive psychology module. As textbooks go this is fantastic. Easy to use and full of every piece of information I required for the module.
