Test Yourself: Developmental Psychology provides essential learning and practice through assessment for your psychology students. It enables year 1 and 2 undergraduates to assess their confidence and competence and prepare for the types of questions featured in their formal university assessments.

The book includes over 200 multiple-choice and extended multiple-choice questions, carefully designed to assess depth of knowledge. At the end of each chapter sample essay questions are provided, along with further guidance, to complement the multiple-choice questions and further test understanding. In addition, information is provided to help students make sense of their results and identify strengths and weaknesses.

It was too basic - tested rote learning rather than understanding

This book is for a more general view of developmental psychology and so not really related to a more sporting field. However I would suggest a very useful tool for those doing a much more broad based course.

This is an excellent idea for learning about developmental psychology. The author orients the reader clearly and the organisation of the material flows and builds around a deep knowledge of the subject.

This book has been recommended for supplemental reading on the developmental module at undergraduate level. I found it a very useful source that I feel will help those students wishing to test their understanding and therefore supplement the lecture and test materials used at the university
