Book Description

A lot goes on in your head when you are doing something simple like remembering (or forgetting!) to do your next assignment. Bruce Goldstein explains all this activity going on in your mind in Cognitive Psychology: Connecting Mind; Research; And Everyday Experience; 5th edition (PDF). Concrete illustrations and examples help you understand both the scientific importance of theories and their relevance to you; including research-based suggestions for better ways to study. MindTap (not included in this sale) brings the experiments to life with interactive demos and CogLab: The Online Cognition Lab. You can participate in experiments as a subject and experience the effects of the demonstrations yourself to learn how the mind works.

P.S We also have Cognitive Psychology: Connecting Mind; Research; and Everyday Experience; 5e’s testbank; instructor manual etc. Contact us for more info.

NOTE: This sale does not contain an access card or code. Only the Cognitive Psychology 5th edition PDF is included.
