The success of the modular version of David Myers's bestselling brief text, Exploring Psychology, proves the author's longheld belief (supported by independent research) that for a number of students, a text comprised of 45 15-page chapters is more effective than one of 15 45-page chapters.

Exploring Psychology, Sixth Edition, in Modules includes all the features and up-to-date content of the current edition of Exploring Psychology organized into 45 modules. It is accompanied by its own expansive variety of media and supplements similar to the Exploring Psychology package, also reorganized to match the modular format.

This is NOT a brief version of Psychology, Seventh Edition, in Modules. Rather, this text is a MODULARIZED version of Exploring Psychology, Sixth Edition.
