Comprehensive Review of Psychology
Comprehensive Review of Psychology (CRP)was written for students. It covers all of the important areas of psychology found in an introductory psychology course. The areas covered include approaches/methods, biological basis of behavior, sensation/ perception, consciousness, learning, memory, cognition/intelligence, motivation/emotion, developmental psychology, personality, health psychology, abnormal psychology, therapies, social psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, and statistics. The reader of the CRP will notice some significant differences between this book and other review books. Comprehensive Review of Psychology fills the gap between those review books that lightly touch on the important concepts and those books that are not complete in both content and subject areas of psychology. Comprehensive Review of Psychology serves as a valuable learning tool for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. It is an aid in the preparation for the College Board's College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement Examination (AP) in Psychology, and the Educational Testing Service's Graduate Record Examination (GRE).The reader of the CRP will understand psychology better and perform well on any psychology examination.
