9780073532127: Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behavior

Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behavior imparts students with a scientific understanding of the field of psychology while showing them the impact on their day-to-day existence. A simple conceptual framework within the text emphasizes relations between biological, psychological, and environmental levels of analysis and portrays the focus of modern psychology. Through a variety of features, the text challenges students to think critically about psychology as a science and its impact on their lives.

To help students study more effectively and efficiently, a groundbreaking adaptive questioning diagnostic and personalized study plan help students "know what they know" while guiding them to master these concepts through engaging interactivities, exercises, and readings.

Now available with Connect Psychology, Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behavior follows the science behind psychology, leading students through the process of critical examination. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.
