I really needed this book August 6, 2014
I got lucky and the rental was only $15 so I saved a bunch of money and I get to get rid of the book when I'm done with the class.
wonderful book to understand the basics March 16, 2011
I needed this textbook for a course and I found it on ecampuss cheaper than any other book store. This is a good textbook to use when getting an understanding of the basics of psychology. The chapters are broken up into shorter modules, making this easier to read and simple to learn. The book is perfect. It is written in simple language, which is very important for undergraduate students. It is like a textbook and study guide put together. This textbook is actually inspired me to go further into psychology studies.
