“I have had overall a positive experience with [the first edition of] this text and I will continue to use it in my class. The additional support for myself and the students through the extra materials provides a great incentive to use this text.”
“The vocabulary is at a level that the students find easy to read and understand which is very important when choosing a text. The layout, colour and the pictures make it a friendly text that the students aren’t intimidated by and will purchase this text over some of the others on their list.”
“I think this [Think Readings] is an amazing feature. It introduces students to scientific journals in a very non-threatening manner. I can use this feature to help students orient themselves for what we call a “wider awareness assignment” where students have to compare the way psychology is talked about in the popular media and the actual science of it.”
