This book, aimed at the undergraduate combines a good amount of depth with enough coverage of the material required for a course in Cognitive psychology. it covers all essential areas such as Memory, Perception, Language and Attention as well as having good summeries and having an easy to read text.

Format: Paperback
I was reluctant to order the book at first as my knowledge on this field is basic and I thought it might not offer practical information easily comprehensible to a nonspecialist. However, I found a lot of information about perception and memory which I think can cast some light on the different ways students understand and recall language. I particularly enjoyed chapter 12 which referred to language comprehension and dealed with the ways in which information is processed explaining terms such as 'parsing' and 'pragmatics' which enabled me see my students' comprehension problems at reading and listening from a different point of view.
Apart from that, there was some information about the abilities of chess masters and other experts which I enjoyed reading. Generally, I think the book is a source of knowledge for anyone who is interested in mental processes and in the way they affect our abilities and skills.

I am a student and found this book a must for studying cognitive psychology. This was the first time I had studied this area and found the book extremely well written. It is easy to read with good summaries. Eysenck has certainly done himself proud with this book!

Format: Paperback
This is a must for any OU student studying D309, but it also compliments perfectly both the foundation and child development courses. Eysenck has definitely mastered this field of psychology! The style and presentation of what is undoubtly a complex subject means you can "dip in" to any area of any chapter.

Format: Paperback
This book covers all major areas within cognitive psychology, which was very useful for my course, but it is a very dry and boring read! Some chapters are rather hard to grasp. I found, it gave enough detail and information about most topics, and once I got used to the way it was written, I found it useful but not the best reference for my studies.

Format: Paperback
When I first acquired this book I was a first year psychology student and I found that each page I seemed to read went way over my head. However the more I studied psychology the more understandable and informative this book became. Although at times you do feel overwhelmed and utterly bewildered, for any student of psychology in this day and age this should be an essential requirement. It is up to date with probably one of the most advanced perspectives in psychology today.

Format: Paperback
Grabbed this text to help with those more 'fun' parts of the psychology second year course. the parts with words like 'mental lexicon' and 'dialectical interplay'. This book will have all you'd need to get yourself a first in there, though to actually do that you have to be very clever of course. (I didn't...damn 2:1's). Most of the book isn't too challenging to read, but the previous reviews do find this. i think they may be mostly refereing to the chapter on deductive reasoning in particular. but my challenge to this is of course thats a hard chapter, deductive reasoning is a very complex process. There may be clearer texts out there, but none so comprehensive.

Last pages of the book were not in good condition, some pages were stuck together cause at some stage the book got probably wet, but it was only the appendix, shipping was fairly quick and I have nothing to complain about this seller. I totally recommended it!
