Your students are individuals. Do your teaching materials treat them that way? Feldman’s Essentials of Understanding Psychology does. From an adaptive diagnostic tool that provides a GPS for learning to a reader-friendly modular organization, Feldman ensures that every student gains a better understanding of psychology.
Its new groundbreaking adaptive diagnostic tool generates a personalized study plan to help students “know what they know” while guiding them to understand and learn what they don’t know through engaging interactivities, exercises, and readings.
The thoroughly revised Ninth Edition continues with Bob Feldman’s accessible pedagogy, hallmark research, and focus on diversity in a flexible modules-within-chapters format.
