Overview

Built on research. Proven by results.

Historically, as publishers, we have worked with you as professors to review and help us publish content to meet your course needs. Over the past few years we expanded our research to truly gather a better understanding of today’s students. We listened, we observed and we followed students to understand how they study, how they take notes, how they read and how they use the web. We also watched instructors prepare, teach, assess, and evaluate their students. Students told us they want more visual and interactive appeal at a less expensive price. They also strive for new ways to be more efficient in their learning.

Now, with our newest M-series program, LifeSmart: Exploring Human Development, you have the opportunity to engage your students as you never have before. LifeSmart’s adaptive diagnostic provides your students with the ability to assess what they know and don’t know before their tests. Furthermore, LifeSmart provides Milestones, our new video and assessment program that helps bring the course material to life, so your students can witness development as it unfolds. Our research gives students current and relevant applications to their lives in a new design layout that will grab your student's attention and make serious scholarship enjoyable to read. LifeSmart fits today’s students.

    Great book. Bad System

    The book is great as far as it relates to the class i needed it for. But the Nook Study leaves something to be desired. I will not purchase another B&N Nook Study book. The software has no mobile app for Android or Ios. I found a B&N site that stated a mobile version would not be made available as resources are better spent making a better reading experience. Well Reading a text book on a computer will never be as good of a experience as reading on a tablet sized device.
    I did manage to get the DRM to break free and allow me a pdf version to place on my tablet and i am not able to read my book from a tablet. This is a much better reading experience. Next time i'll go somewhere else and either purchase a E version from a source that has a mobile app or i will just buy a paper version.
