As others state, no cog lab included which is very misleading

1.0 out of 5 stars No Coglab 17 Jan. 2016
By Jackie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bought the new version solely because I wanted the Coglab bundle. The book did not come with Coglab so I had to pay an extra $50 in addition to the full price of the new textbook. It is unclear that the book does not come with Coglab as it is mentioned in the info section

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written textbook 21 Nov. 2014
By jwach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have read several psychology books throughout my college career, and this one is by far the most well written textbook I have ever read. This author does a great job of explaining things, and giving examples that really let you relate concepts to every day life. He makes it easy to learn and not just read and forget.

3.0 out of 5 stars but I feel like it only touches on some important people/events/experiments and delves ... 2 April 2016
By Annalisa Vilaysing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just have to use it for a class I'm taking, but I feel like it only touches on some important people/events/experiments and delves too much into things that don't pertain to the chapter or section. I am also particularly peeved that the author spent 4 paragraphs in excruciating detail to explain how flow charts work as if people don't already know how they work.

Does the textbook do it's job at explaining stuff? Yes. Does it over-explain some trivial topics and is just a waste of pages? Also yes. It teaches you what you need to know, but to me, the book is just okay.

1.0 out of 5 stars UGH 25 April 2016
By C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a Psychology major, this is quite possibly the worst and most frustrating textbooks I've read.
As echoed by other comments, CogLab is not included with the purchase of this textbook so you have to pay additional money to get access to that. I did not think the CogLab was worth the money or my time.
The author does a terrible job at defining terms and in most cases does not define the terms within the reading. I found this the most frustrating because how are students supposed to understand what a key term is when the surrounding context gives no hints? Additionally, the examples provided in the text create no further depth in understanding the concept. The author simply went on and on for several examples that could have been stated in a few sentences. I found myself skipping most examples because the point was established within a few sentences.

1.0 out of 5 stars NO COGLAB 29 Mar. 2016
By Laura Matheson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Super frustrated because the distribution says it comes with the COGLAB which I need for my class. We are poor enough and strapped for time already being in college. The last thing we need is "trusted" sites like this taking advantage of us. Make the description clearer. I will be returning this.
