In a concise and accessible format that incorporates the latest research, ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY, 5TH EDITION encourages you to learn by doing--to actively participate using materials from the text and to think about what you're learning as opposed to passively receiving written information. Effective learning features that help you master the material include Linkages that show how topics in psychology are interrelated, Thinking Critically sections that walk you through a five-question approach to one topic in each chapter, and Focus on Research sections that help you learn to think objectively about research questions and results.
