    Needed book for Psych class

    I was really not looking forward to have to read a Psych book for my class. I was worried it was going to be boring and dry. But it was actually exetremly interesting and not as monotonous as I thought it would be. It gave me relevent insight and gave me examples that I would understand and could relate to!

    The book and Shipping

    Each chapter of this book is very very long. It goes into details about the topics it covers. There are many examples given. I would recommend this book to any psy majors starting to go into the field. The shipping of this book was also great. As soon as I ordered it it came like 2-3 days later. Much Much faster than I expected... *Two Thumbs* up.. love Barnes and Noble...

    Windows 8 and Galaxy S II

    If you have windows 8 or Galaxy S II, do not try to purchase this ebook format. Neither of those devices/program support NookStudy which is required for reading this book.

    more from this reviewer

    I'm a student in College.

    It's a pretty useful textbook. Gives interesting examples to help you remember concepts, however there's TOO MANY examples for some concepts which makes reading longer than it should be. Other than that it's useful because of the terms on the side that make skimming the book a lot easier.
    This has helped me get A's on my past two exams so I would recommend purchasing it for your class.
