Product Description

Review

The present volume is a major enterprise, into which much work, and much information has been poured.
The Psychology of Education Review

It is ahead of it's time scholastically - state of the art research; colour coding helps retain critical information. This will be the leading introduction for British undergraduates in psychology for the next few decades.
Dr A Cassidy, Belfast Institute of Further & Higher Education

This text is a complete education in psychological science from a contemporary critical perspective, provocative and engages the reader to think critically about the application of psychological principles in everyday human behaviour and social interaction.


Dr A Cassidy, Belfast Institute of Further & Higher Education

Format: Paperback
This book is essential for first year undergrads studying any kind of psychology course. The easy to understand text and diagrams are fun and informative, and at a level that requires no prior knowledge of psychology. Each chapter also gives a list of further suggested reading at the end, which is helpful when undertaking research. Must read!

This is a fantastic book; a must-have for any psychology student at University. All information is presented clearly and is relevant to what is taught in psychology today. A truly useful and helpful book. I highly recommend it.

I purchased this book prior to undertaking an 'Introduction to Psychology' course with the Open University with the intention of simply getting a 'heads up' before the course began. Like other commenters have mentioned, it does appear to utilise quite simple language at times and I must admit that whilst reading it for the first time I did feel that my intelligence was being insulted.

Having said that however, I found this book to be worth it's weight in gold! Why? For the many, many times during the course where I felt I wasn't quite 'getting it' only to turn to this book and have the exact concepts and ideas explained in simple, easy to understand terms. As a textbook in it's own right it may be lacking but as a reference guide (OK, idiots guide if you like!) I found it invaluable. It certainly helped me pass the course, and I would recommend it to anyone undertaking OU or any other 'distance-learning' type Psychology studies.

This book is great for first year undergrads because it has chapters on all the modules covered on most psychology courses, and everything is explained really well without all the waffle you usually get in textbooks, definitely recommended to anyone doing a psychology degree.

The book is very handy. I haven't read the whole book, but it is handy to get general review of therapies that are available.

In addition, it is useful to reinforce any material that has been covered in psychology lectures at university. Good for those lectures that cover learning process or therapies etc..

If you are doing anything that is to do with research methods then it is recommended to find other text book.

Would recommmend for anyone who is taking psychology.

This text book does indeed have it all for the BPS accreditation seeking student, but is it just me or is it a little patronising? At times I feel like I'm reading a GCSE textbook. Admittedly I am taking a postgraduate conversion psychology course, but I can imagine that I still would have felt mildly insulted as a first year undergraduate.

Amazing condition for something that was described as 'good'. Really good book. More than sufficient for my Level 4 course. Easy to read. Good use of illustrations too.
