If only my teacher was as good as this book......  September 23, 2011
by


I usually don't enjoy reading school books, but I must admit that I took a lot from this text. However I must also admit that my teacher (Dr. Beamen I can only hope your reading this) was awful. Without this book, Psy101 would've been the hardest freshman level class I've ever taken.






Psychology (paperback): 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
