Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The printed textbook,Psychology: The Core, covers the core content of psychology--the essentials that every introductory psychology student should know. The book is briefer than a standard introductory text, allowing for a lower cost to students and using less printed paper. It includes study aids students have told us they find useful--concept maps, note-taking features, and a laminated study card highlighting the most challenging topics in introductory psychology. The websitewww.PsychologyTheCore.com, provides more in-depth treatment of topics, up-to-date statistics, cutting edge research, simulations, video clips, and real-world applications of psychology.  A monthly blog provides an opportunity for us to post interesting links and new research findings and to respond to questions from our readers. Annual updates to the site will ensure that readers have access to all the latest findings.

Haven't received book. Ordered it on the 10th and it's the 25th. Ordered five other books and I got them within three days. If they state on their review that is false. I am not doing any more business with Jbeans Supplies. They are very disappointing!

I received my book on time. Unfortunately it was stuck to the envelope it was in so I had to rip the cover to get it off. There were also missing pages from the book but for this price I can't really complain.

I don't like psychology--too weird and technical. Took the class online which made it worse. Not good for online tests.
