"This is a fantastic text for independent learning. Students have told me that they find themselves wanting to read beyond the pages that I have assigned! This book is the most student-friendly textbook that I could find in my search for an appropriate text for my course." "This textbook is far and away the best textbook for undergraduates taking their first course in the psychology of learning. Terms are introduced carefully, and the language and jargon is held to a level that is not daunting to introductory-level students. Copious figures, diagrams, and study aids such as short quizzes facilitate understanding. My students have consistently reported that they like this textbook, which has NEVER happened with any other learning textbook that I have used." "In the past, students particularly reacted positively toward the Advice to the Lovelorn columns. They are very creative ways of emphasizing the applied nature of learning theory that students can readily relate to their own personal lives. It allows students to see the learning theory explanations of their own behaviors. I like the nature of the Quick Quizzes interspersed throughout the chapter as fill-in-the-blank questions. The Concept Review provides an excellent and quick glossary of terms for students and the And Furthermore sections are excellent expansions, applications and interesting anecdotes about the theories and theorists. The writing style and pedagogical features interspersed throughout the chapter made learning about learning fun for the students!" "I have very much enjoyed this textbook for several reasons. First, it is extremely easy to read. The content in each chapter is pertinent and concise. Second, there are many tools available to the students that are useful in reviewing the material. I have found the Quick Quizzes and the Concept Reviews very helpful as I review the information. Also, I have used the website in conjunction with the textbook which enhances my understanding of the material." "In addition, the textbook is geared for college students. For example, the concepts in Dr. Dee are relevant and applicable to the life of a student. Dr. Dee is a great tool to demonstrate the practical application of the principles taught in the book."
