Test Yourself: Cognitive 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 tackle the types of questions they will face in their formal university examinations.

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 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.

I believe that learning through assessment is a key concept that can facilitate learning, understanding and competence in fundamental knowledge within the field of cognitive psychology. I will be using this text as a supplement to motivate learner interest in post lecture seminars and workshops.
