Review

Ciccarelli and White's Psychology: An Introduction is a great introductory psychology textbook, which features an introduction that enables students to glean their learning style and how best to study, take notes, and write papers (a useful how-to for any class and any student). It covers all of the main areas of psychology in a logical and precise fashion, highlighting all critical theories and constructs.

- Laura May of University of South Carolina Aiken


Have you seen the great new Ciccarelli intro text? I really like it because it has current information that students can connect with like Psych: In the News, applying psychology to your life and comments and questions posed by real students. I also like the way she included the APA learning outcomes. I find this really helpful for the psych. majors so they can focus on mastery of the concepts and content they will be tested on when they take the G.R.E. Her writing style is very accessible for my students!

- Lee Kooler of Modesto Junior College

 

Engaging writing that covers the material in a concise manner while effectively utilizing some important pedagogical features.

- Perry Fuchs of UT Arlington

 

Thoughtfully written and assembled, engaging, interesting, and student-centered.

- Sarah Estow of Guilford College

Saundra K Ciccarelli is a Professor of Psychology at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida. She received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from George Peabody College of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. She is a member of the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science. Originally interested in a career as a researcher in the development of language and intelligence in developmentally delayed children and adolescents, Dr. Ciccarelli had publications in the American Journal of Mental Deficiency while still at Peabody. However, she discovered a love of teaching early on in her career. This led her to the position at Gulf Coast State College, where she has been teaching Introductory Psychology and Human Development for over 30 years. Her students love her enthusiasm for the field of psychology and the many anecdotes and examples she uses to bring psychology to life for them. Before writing this text, Dr. Ciccarelli authored numerous ancillary materials for several introductory psychology and human development texts.

As a licensed psychologist, Dr. White has worked as a consultant in a variety of settings, including adult mental health, developmental disabilities, and juvenile justice. Back on campus, he operates an active lab and with his students is currently investigating the psychophysiological characteristics and neuropsychological performance of adults with and without ADHD. Outside of the lab, Dr. White is engaged in collaborative research examining the effectiveness of incorporating technology in and out of the college classroom to facilitate student learning. He also serves as a mentor for other faculty wanting to expand their use of technology with their classes. In 2008, he was a recipient of the Georgia College Excellence in Teaching Award.

I needed to rent this for my sister's class and found this was the PSYCH 101 book. She told me it got the job done, and the book overall helped with her studies. She returned it, and the process was very simple. Amazon gives you a label, and you just ship it back in the box you got it in.

I ordered this item brand new, directly from Amazon. It was delivered fine. However, it had a sticker on the back labeling it as 'NEW'. The cover was creased and beat up, and it did not have the card enclosed with the item including the online code (which it was supposed to have). If I wanted to get a second rate book, I would have saved myself the money and ordered a used one vs. purchasing a second rate book, being passed off as new.

I have and am using this textbook for my general psychology course which lasts for two semesters. I love how this book uses research to explain certain theories and concepts in psychology. Also how they integrate the history of notable psychologists or professionals in the field of psychology. I greatly appreciate the end of section review quiz. I haven't fully utilized the end of chapter test/review but I definitely will. As a visual learner I benefit from the pictures of concepts and studies used. I also appreciate how the definitions are usually verbatim from the text, without extra information such as examples and further in depth explanations. Also how each chapter is divided into smaller headings and some of these headings are on the same sub subject within the chapter. The first chapter is useful tips to be successful readers using their techniques such as the SQR4 or some acronym for effective reading habits. This is a great textbook for someone thinking about majoring in psychology, because its a great way to be introduced to the subject. The writing is universal so that anyone can understand it, which is vital in a good textbook!

Rented this book - received with spine of book broken. When returned after end of semester $215 was IMMEDIATELY deducted from my account stated book received back not acceptable. But it was acceptable for me to rent it in that same condition. Wonder if the previous renter was also charged $215 for the book on top of the rental fee.

This textbook is such an easy read! I am currently in chapter 10 and I have actually enjoyed reading. The one dislike is that some subjects needed more elaboration. I currently have a A in psychology and can give partical credit to this textbook.
