Easy to use and intelligently judged this book offers the modern student the basic materials, tools and guidance for planning essays and passing exams.
A fantastic resource but not appropriate for the level of study I required the resource for.
The topics addressed map onto the UG level 2-3 curriculum well.
GREAT BOOK FOR NON PSYCHOLOGICAL STUDENT
It doesn't quite match up with the BTEC specification. Although what is included is very good.
This is a great book to provide the students with an up to date brief overview. Not detailed enough to be a core text book on Essential reading though. Good Book, well written
