I have mixed feelings about this book (7th Edition). Generally, I like it and would give it a 4-star. The material was expansive and interesting, the graphical presentation excellent and informative. Two features made me downgrade it to three stars (and I'd have preferred to give it a 3 1/2 stars if Amazon let me. The problems noted below were just too frustrating.

First, the website associated with the book is truly dreadful (but could have been such a good resource). Practice exercises and exams in which "fill in the blank" entries are used are almost unworkable. They are looking for a particular word out of the book, and synonyms or plurals (even when grammatically correct) are flagged as wrong answers. The use of semicolons to separate multiple word answers will also result in answers flagged as wrong, or if the order of correct answers is mixed. As somebody who has written a lot of scripts, I must judge whomever wrote the scripts underlying these exercises to be thoroughly incompetent (have they ever heard of an OR statement or pattern matching?!). Since the text itself doesn't contain exercises, thought problems, and the like (and refers you to the website, I was left with no resource for practicing and developing my understanding.

Second, since the underlying material is such an active area of research right now, much of the material is based upon publications. Many of the descriptions of the material in the publications is watered down for presentation, and the key concepts get lost in translation.

The material is presented in an easy to read format, supplemental illustrations are in color and are excellent. My professor decided not to use the book in favor of the PowerPoint slides in conjunction with lecture. I read the book anyway for details not in the lecutres. I'm using the loose leaf version of text, and prefer that format.

I had to use this textbook for my Biopsychology course Senior year. I rented it for the semester because, as a poor college student, I wanted to cut corners. However looking back, I really regret skimping out. This book was fantastic and would greatly help my now that I am in graduate school pursuing my PhD. Really great information in a very clear manner. If you have to use it for a class you'll really enjoy it; and if you are looking for a good textbook to have around the house (to refer to or just make you look smart) this book will really do the job.

The book itself arrived in excellent condition and before my course even started, so I could go into class well prepared. There were a few bookmarks leftover from the previous user, but that didn't bother me. I had an amazing rental experience!

A majority of the book was intact. There were a few pages that had been torn out and subtly put back together. I don't really mind it because I can just tape or staple to pages in, I just wish I would have known about it.

Arrived a little later then expected but it's in a good condition with little to no damage and it is the promised item for a good price too. However textbook isn't that helpful as it reads ver forward and for sure needs a teacher covering it
