I had to use this book for my Cognitive Psychology class. It was actually easy to read since the writer explains concepts easily with pictures and examples and it’s all stuff that’s applicable in everyday life that we aren’t even aware of doing.
I really like this text book. The chapters are usually between 20 and 30 pages each which isn’t bad at all. They’re also full of good information. I purchased my book with the coglab manual and access code for class. The labs supplement the text well. Reading and working on the labs is a lot of fun.
This arrived really quickly, in almost perfect condition. The textbook itself is really easy to understand, and is great for my class. It explains in detail all the things my professor doesn’t have the time to do. It also uses examples that are easy to relate to, which really helps drive in the points they are trying to make. I also like that it has “test yourself” questions at the end of each section; it really helps me keep in track and make sure I’m actually comprehending what I have read and not just reading it for the sake of reading it. As far as textbooks go, this one does the job.
