I don't often write reviews on textbooks but for this one, I'm making the exception.
I really hate this book. Not only is it drawn out and pretty jumbled up, making the chapters 60 pages long on average, it's also incredibly difficult to find ANYTHING in this book. This is my primary problem. In my Developmental Psychology class, a lot of our quizzes and tests are open-book BECAUSE the chapters are so long. But they are also timed; you get roughly 1 minute and 30 seconds per question to answer. Using the book often ends up being more of a hindrance than a help because the index in this book is complete and utter crap. Like I have never seen a more worse index in any other textbook in my life. There are vague things in the index that never should've been there and there are specific things that SHOULD be there but aren't so before you know it, you've wasted 3 minutes searching for an answer and you start a race to play catch-up.
If you have to get this book for a class, take my advice and just rent it so you don't waste too much of your money on this dumb product.
