The book covers the essentials of biological psychology. The material is broad but summarised succinctly. A number of helpful features are provided for the reader. I made good use of the `key terms' boxes throughout the book and found that they really focused my attention. It thought it was written in an elegant and easy to understand style. When I read the book I had already completed two modules in biological psychology, but my knowledge was diffuse and fragmented. This book consolidated my existing knowledge by presenting the material in a friendly, straight forward and logical manner. The layout of the book is such that I hardly noticed myself speeding through the pages. As well as key terms, each chapter contains key studies, chapter summaries, sample questions, revision checklists and more. I found that these really broke up the material nicely and prevented my mind from wandering.
The online companion website is a great addition to the book itself. I don't usually go through the questions at the ends of chapters, but the interactive online questions were very useful. Rather than having to troll through the chapter to check my answers the online chapter-tests gave me instant feedback and guided answers. This book is a superb revision tool allowing you to cover a broad area in a sufficient amount of detail. For those with a bit more experience, it's an enjoyable and easy read which can really consolidate your existing knowledge. When you need to refresh yourself on the fundamentals it's an extremely fast and efficient resource. You reach for the book, flick to the relevant chapter, and are instantly satisfied every time.

A useful revision aid but no substitute for the bigger, more detailed textbooks that are 'out there'. I bought it to help me get through my MSc Psychology module and it was a handy travelling companion as I moved around with work or on holiday - but do access the companion website for the extra material offered as it does expand this book's content.
