I wish this digital version mirrored the hard copy version with page numbers and a more cleanly laid out table of contents with index and glossary...

I hate it. It has no depth, doesn't explain things well. There's an online study guide with an online code, it is hardly a study guide. It does not help. My class takes exams based off of the publishers test and I just want to pull my hair out! it's funny that in one of the chapters they mention how to administer good tests, yet their tests makes me want to punch a wall. There may be a variety of homework problems, but there isn't much consistency in reoccurring problems. I can't tell whether my answers are correct or if that is how you solve it because I can't compare it to any other problems or answers (answers are given for odd numbers) and the book doesn't do a great job on helping me solve the problems...I deeply loathe this book, it does not help me understand anything. It's frustrating. Not worth the investment but there's nothing I can do about it because I'm required to buy this book, my school needs to find better textbooks...come on! please give me my money back publishers. I'm a college student and I want my money back!

This college textbook is not well organized. The material is printed in a light colored ink, making it difficult to read. Some material is not explained well enough.

I didn't exactly find this textbook to be as helpful as I would have liked. It did go over some interesting concepts and statistics (particularly in the obesity section), but other than that the only thing I found the book useful for was as a reference guide for some different SPSS work, and for different older adult and child fitness test protocols.
