The textbook so far is good but behavior modification these days are now being known as behavioral analysis. The questions on the end of each chapters are very helpful for reviews of chapter as well as a quick quiz at the end of the textbook for each chapter.
The material itself can be hard for understanding but the professors make it worst based on my experience. You are better off reading this book, studying this book and get the same information in a better, detailed way than a professor may.
