The information in this textbook is comprehensive and details all the major concepts that cognitive psychology contains. It clearly defines complicated terms and ideas, and elucidates on the major theories that are specific to this field of psychology.

I have a few issues with the textbook that hurts its utility, with the first being its inadequate subject index making it difficult to find specific concepts or words and the page number they correspond to. I experienced this many times while trying to complete assignments, and found it simpler to google the concepts as it was faster than skimming the chapters for what I was seeking. Secondly, I feel the textbook goes into extremes in its attempts to relate the material in a pragmatic sense, when an explanation of the theory and the data that supports it would be more than sufficient. Finally, the ZAPS program seems a bit dated visually and could benefit from an overhaul of its user interface.

Overall, this textbook will get you through the course and give you a decent foundation in cognition.

out of three components advertised, I merely received one, and not even the main one at that.
I was promised, a text book, a work book, and a ZAPs, however; I received only the work book.
I'm not sure how to contact the seller, but I need this fixed pronto.

Although I learned alot of interesting things from this book I hated it. The author was so repetitive about simple things but only briefly explained most of th hard to grasp, head scratching things. Also, when past research experiments were explained to prove a point the author never mentioned any limitations and seemed as if he just wanted the reader to take it as face value. This was the biggest issue for me because I could come up with alot of possible limitations of the mentioned experiment that made me question the authors explabations of how things worked and why they worked that way.

Would be fantastic, but the 6th edition of Cognition: Exploring the science of the mind is out. This means the workbook is out of date, like a whole chapter is missing and other information is moved into other chapters. If it was in its 6th edition, it would probably be great with the exercises and discussions.

Too much going on. No highlighting or bold casing of important information. For all the information infused in this text, the presentation could have been better to make the learning experience a tad enjoyable. Worst text Iv ever had the misfortune of using. The text goes on like a run on sentence with no features to enhance learning. I just conduct online research for additional info.

The most dry and uninteresting text that I have ever had the misfortune of being required to read for a class. Make sure you are awake before reading. I bought another text just to help me get through this one with the hope of understanding the theories.

Did not receive workbook or ZAPS with my book like it said it would. And now I have to separately purchase ZAPS for $30 on their website for my class, when I already had to pay $60 just to RENT the book. I guess this was their plan all along. Always trying to get more and more money from college students. Very disappointed.
Fascinating! A complex topic, presented clearly.
