Like reading a magazine--not a textbook--Plotnik's INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY, NINTH EDITION will draw you in and show you how exciting the study of psychology can be. Rod Plotnik's modular, visual approach to the fundamentals of psychology makes even the toughest concepts engaging and entertaining. Really—that’s what students like you say themselves about the text. How is that possible? Each and every page of the text is individually planned, written, and formatted to effectively incorporate the use of Visual Cues, which help you to better remember information. The text also utilizes “chunking,” a method of breaking concepts down into small, easily digested sections that help you learn at your own pace, The authors’ commitment to visual learning is extended into their text’s comprehensive ancillary package, the cornerstone of which is the multimedia PowerStudy. Updated and now available on DVD, PowerStudy 4.5 is a unique and unusually effective study guide.
