[The book] is concise, yet thorough- comprehensive, yet unpretentious." --Angela Bloomquist, California University of Pennsylvania 'Compared to other texts, Ormrod's text is written in a more accessible way...Strengths [include] accessibility, good use of supplementary materials, [and] updated research." --David Yun Dai, University at Albany, SUNY "Love how each chapter discusses diversity and special needs! ...Most students keep this text throughout their teaching careers as a resource. Of all the educational psychology textbooks that I've used, this one is the most comprehensive and interactive with vivid examples...The supplemental materials are very useful. The power point is extensive and easy to use for lecture. I use the test bank materials and find the questions to be aligned with students' licensure exams." --Cindy Ballantyne, Northern Arizona University Note: MyEducationLab does not come automatically packaged with this text.
