For my psychology class I bought this version of the book, I get to class on the first day to find out I needed the 7th edition , but as it turned out this edition was almost the same exact thing practically word for word in fact. I was able to do all of my classwork no problem and it's a fairly good introduction psychology textbook. I think the 7th edition was just made because it comes with a CD that has extra features on it but was not necessary for me.

There is only ONE CHAPTER in the book placing a lot of emphasis on behavioral neuroscience which has its place in psychology and it talks about the brain and neurotransmitters and how our physiological body plays a role. I really liked how this book was written and what it touched on. It was pretty good for a general psychology 1 class. My book came in good condition and I also bought the study guide to help with finals.

It's a great book for learning psychology. It has a nice add with questions and quizzes that help you understand concepts and terms and think about how they relate to life.

The only problem I had with ordering this book through Amazon.com was that my book did not come with an online access code to the e-book and audio versions. The book is supposed to come with it and it would make my life so much better if I could listen to the text in the car, but I didn't get the code...

Really interesting book for reading on your own time. I never read it until a test came up. I regret it because when I study out of the book for a test, I get distracted and keep reading the chapter...

Thank you,
-Happy student :)
