From the Publisher:

Visual 'advance organizer.' The opening page to each major section of the text now contains a visual overview of the conceptual organization of the information presented in that section. Studies have shown that viewing an advance organizer before reading a passage increases retention of the content of the passage.

· Increased coverage of positive psychology and evolutionary psychology, which are two of the hottest areas in psychology.
· New Information on developmental changes in the brain and their relations to changes in behavior and mental processes has been added to keep the book in step with the advances in psychology.
· PowerWeb is bound into the book, providing even more value to an already value-laden package. PowerWeb provides students with current articles, curriculum-based materials, weekly updates with assessment, informative and timely world news, refereed Web links, research tools, study tools, and interactive exercises. Each chapter ends with an exercise to help integrate this valuable tool.
· Proven pedagogical design -each chapter begins with an "advance organizer" that provides the student with a cognitive structure on which to hang new information. Section reviews reinforce the cognitive structure, self-quizzes check the learning of facts, and critical thinking questions encourage deep processing.
· Quality Research 'Ben Lahey is an experienced researcher who knows how to evaluate new evidence in psychology. This ensures accurate and timely scholarship that instructors can trust.
· Practice Tests are packaged with each copy of the text to help students in exam preparation and to aid in overcoming test anxiety.
· Study Skills Pre-Chapter is included to help students learn and apply good study habits that will lead to success in this and future courses.
