Great book, not so great online resource
on July 4, 2013
The book is great. It has good examples and is easy to read. It covers all the topics in depth and the material is easy to follow and understand. I was required to purchase this book for a college class, and I found it a great addition to the daily lecture notes. The Web Study Guide was disappointing. It is more of a resource for doing the activities in the book (probably if the teacher wanted to assign them). The chapter quizzes were pathetic. For chapters that were 20-30 textbook pages long, the accompanying chapter quiz would only be 5 questions. Additionally, those questions were typically extremely easy and not comprising of the main topics/key words of the chapter, making it essentially useless as a study material for tests. Overall, for a great read on the basic ideas of sport/exercise psychology, get this book. Unless you know you will be assigned the activities in the book, save your money and avoid the web study guide.
