"I would always recommend Hockenbury as the most readable and
utilizable text to accompany ANY Principles of Psychology or
Introduction to Psychology college course! The chapters are very
readable, the pictures are excellent, and it is well-organized and
well written. I suggest assigning a summary paragraph (3-5
sentences) to be read BEFORE each PowerPoint lecture. Then, with
the addition of demonstrations and real-life examples PSYCHOLOGY
can "come alive" to your students and be a thrilling stepping stone
into their futures."
Linda Dunn, Thomas Nelson Community College
"[This] text would be an excellent choice to give students a
solid foundation in terms of psychological concepts, and includes
many tools and features that will equip them to apply theses
concepts in and outside of the classroom. The accompanying
supplemental digital materials are designed to hold the interest of
today's tech-savvy students. It is a combination of classical and
contemporary psychology all in one package."
Brenda Beagle, John Tyler Community College, Chester
"This textbook has the same chapters as every other intro psych
textbook, and covers the same topics, but does so in an
interesting, appealing way that should help students succeed in the
course. It works very well for us at our college, and would
probably do the same at most other colleges."
Craig Bowden, Mid-State Technical College, Wisconsin Rapids
