Summary

From his experience as both an author and teacher, David Myers has concluded that students digest material more easily when it is presented in smaller chunks. Ask students whether they would prefer a 700-page book to be organized as 14, 50-page chapters or as 50, 14-page chapters and their answers will approach a consensus: they prefer shorter chapters.

Acting upon this belief, Myers has created a modular version of his best-selling introductory text, Psychology. Psychology, Seventh Edition, in Modules breaks down the 18 chapters of Psychology, Seventh Edition into 55 short chapters, or modules. Featuring the latest research and teaching innovations, Myers' new text reflects the author's continuing drive to discover the most effective way to communicate psychology's major ideas to an uninitiated audience.
