This is a brilliant book. I'm on a conversion MSc and am definitely using this book for the memory bit of my exam this year - just have to decide whether to actually buy it or wait on library copies. Provides a clear, balanced and detailed coverage of memory research as it has developed and as it stands now. Unlike many textbooks, it also goes into sufficient details about experiments themselves rather than just giving the author's take on experiments. Recommended. I think sometimes people expected psychology to be easy. It isn't, nor should it be!
