Format: Loose Leaf
I have taken two classes where this book was used as the primary textbook:
1. Undergraduate - taught by Dr. Santrock himself: a pitiful class at UTD - Too much info for one semester, pompous instructor. Good lectures, informative, and well planned. Still, not a class I would recommend. And no, I don't have sour grapes. I passed the class with a B, while about 1/4 of the class dropped out, because of sheer frustration. My average at UTD was 3.75 and this class brought my grade average down.
2. Graduate - taught by a wonderful instructor who had to cut the material quite a bit to be able to teach it in one semester.
I realize this is a popular book, well-written and comprehensive, used by most major universities; yet, I maintain (and I am a teacher now myself) that the amount of info in this textbook is overwhelming for a one-semester class. Thus, it does not lend for effective and useful teaching.

The publisher is too cheap to even bind the book and they charge students $168 for it? Unbelievable! Who ever heard of a loose leaf book? To keep it together it's necessary to buy a notebook separately, and that makes for a bulkier item to carry around. Content-wise it's relatively decent.

I have used Santrock's texts in several editions. The books are loaded with content and research and have been of excellent quality. The publisher's decision to produce a 14th edition in a loose bound format coupled with smaller print on thinner paper stock is disappointing. This format detracts from the content, and the reduced quality of paper and printing render it a frail piece of merchandise. Will students actually be able to resell this ream of paper at the end of a term?

This is a required text book for my Developmental Psychology class. I will say the textbook's content seems to be fine and well organized... HOWEVER... Who's genius idea is a loose leaf text book?!?! The resale on this is going to take a bite out of this college student's pocket book.

This is one of the best lifespan books I have ever read but it is so dissapointing that it's not bound. For how expensive this book is, the spine should be bound.

This book was required for a sophomore level college psychology class. It is an excellent book with wonderful illustrations, graphs, and charts. It also provides great definitions. The explanations are terrific and really walk you through life span development. The only negative thing I have say about the book is that it's loose leaf (yep, loose leaf) and costs a lot of money!!
