Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour 6th Edition (Paperback)
I was reluctant at first to purchase this book as one of my course colleagues insisted it was only for A-Level students. However, after reading numerous reviews I was persuaded to buy it. It arrived today and the assumption my colleague made in regards of it being a 'A-Level book' is completely false. It is THE reference book in psychology with every core concept in psychology covered. And what is more, even though it covers the vast majority of core topics, it does not comprimise in detail. There are also excellent illustrations in the text which I'm sure will appeal to the 'visual' learners with very clear and concise captions. As this is the latest edition it is very contemporary and up to date with modern psychology. And lastly, the front-cover ain't bad either.

Yes - I heard academics at my university say it was Ok until A level but not after that. However I ignored them & used it throughout my undergraduate studies (coupled with more specialist books of course). It served me well as I got 1st class honours. and in my opinion was far better than the recommended 1st year undergrad textbook which mayny students did not like. Good luck with your studies.
