The list go on to included behavior, sensation, consciousness, emotions, learning , memory, language, development, personality, social psychology, disorders ,therapy and positive Psychology. Each chapter has a refresher at the end to allow you to answer the questions. What a good source of rehashing the information.
Each chapter is very detailed to each topic, each chapter outlines the words, along with their definition on the same page. This allows you to see the word in its context, instead of going to the back of the book for the information. Well written for your enjoyment while learning at the same time.
Discovering Psychology Science of Mind is an overall great textbook for college students in the Psychology field, and even for those who are specializing in Substance Abuse. It discuss' the basics of Psychology in sub sections, such as the history, mind and brain, from how it develops, and how it can be effected from certain things such as drugs. I said above this text was good for those in Substance Abuse because it has a Chapter in the book cut out just for drugs and alcohol in which it describes a numerous amount of drugs and what they can do to a person's brain.
Although this book is fairly pricey for just the hardback, I would highly recommend getting the e-text version and code for Aplia.com, even if the Professor doesn't require it. It will cost you about $15.00 more but will allow you to highlight in the text, make your own flash cards, have someone read the book to you, make notes on each page, and even give you tests on each chapter that will help you get a better understanding of the material in the chapters. Overall, if one does this, they are studying for exams without really realizing it and are bound to get an "A" in the course.Read more ›

I thought it was well written. I had to read it for school and that is not always enjoyable, but I loved being able to have it on my Ipad.Published 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
