I bought this book for a class, but I am really enjoying it! It’s well written and informative and I want to hang on to it after class is over so I can apply it to my own life and work. That said, this book is PRICY…so I was thrilled to be offered a loose-leaf option! It saved me a bunch of money and I just pop the chapters I need into a binder for class!. A word of warning, the pages do get folded and bent more easily when in loose leaf format, so just be careful!
It’s ok for a school book. ALthough it was in a binder, you have to keep in mind that the pages are very thin and can tear away from the rings. Other than that issue no problems.
This textbook is an easy read. The author’s style of writing makes it easy to follow. Be sure to get the study guide to help you master the material.
This book was exactly as described. Basically brand new. This book is a pretty easy read with lots of side pictures and extra information. You get to take extra online quizes to prepare you for the real quizzes later on. Pretty handy.
Excellent textbook for learning about all the developmental aspects of psychology. I highly recommend this textbook to anyone either interested in or taking the subject.
