From the Back Cover:

MyPsychLab is a learning and assessment tool that allows instructors to assess student performance and adapt course content without investing a lot of additional time or resources.  

 

Students benefit from this easy-to-use site with or without their instructor’s involvement. Students can test themselves on key content, track their progress, and utilize individually tailored study plan activities, including an e-book, newsfeeds, simulations, and videos.

 

MyPsychLab for our latest Abnormal Psychology textbooks also includes Speaking Out: The DSM in Context , which ties real patient interview videos to specific content from the DSM-IV, helping students understand how the DSM-IV criteria applies to real people experiencing disorders.
