Designed to give your students the extra support they need to succeed in your classroom, our Study Edition of Bee/Boyd's Lifespan Development, Third Edition, offers perforated chapter practice tests at the end of the textbook, an optional Practice Test Solutions Manual with access to professional tutoring, and an Instructor's Answer Key with solutions and ready-made midterm and final exams. Containing the same engaging and effective features that have made Lifespan Development such a success, the Study Edition offers an additional bonus: perforated chapter quizzes at no extra cost to students. Because the answers to the practice tests are not included in the Study Edition, instructors can use the tests as quizzes or as extra homework. If instructors prefer to give students the option of checking their own results, they can package the Study Edition with our Practice Test Solutions Manual for FREE. Also included FREE with this option is our Tutor Center Access Card to provide students with extra study support from our qualified Tutor Center professionals by phone, fax, e-mail, and the Internet. With either ordering option, students get a valuable and effective study system not found in other books!
