Connect with Lifespan Development and connect with success

Informed and driven by research. At McGraw-Hill, we have spent thousands of hours with you and your students, working to understand the key needs and concerns you face in Human Development courses. The most common topics raised include managing the vast amount of content inherent to a Lifespan course and ensuring the dependability of the assigned material—is it current and accurate? The result of this research is John Santrock’s Life-Span Development.

Life-Span Development ensures students complete and understand the assigned material in a number of ways: Santrock’s hallmark Learning Goals pedagogy provides a comprehensive roadmap to the text material, clearly pointing out the core concepts fundamental to students’ learning and performance. Our adaptive study tool, LearnSmart, increases students’ efficiency in studying by identifying what they know, and more importantly what they don’t know, providing immediate remediation for the areas in which they are struggling. At the same time, instructors have access to powerful, visual reports allowing them to quickly see where students’ strengths and weaknesses lie. Connect Lifespan takes your instruction and your students’ learning experience to the next level without requiring hours of setup and personalized instruction by you.

The 14th edition continues with the connections theme to help students better understand the concepts among the different aspects of life-span development. This recurring theme of connections—Developmental Connections, Topical Connections, Connecting Development to Life, Connecting with Careers, and Connections through Research—ties together concepts from across chapters to reinforce the learning process and connects the material to students’ everyday lives and future aspirations. Our Milestones of Development video series helps bring the course material to life, allowing students to witness development as it unfolds. And of course, all of the text material is informed by Life-Span Development’s unique board of expert consultants—a who’s who of developmental psychology—who make sure the material is as accurate and up-to-date as possible.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much info for a one-course textbook. March 1 2013
By the rose lady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Loose Leaf
I have taken two classes where this book was used as the primary textbook:
1. Undergraduate - taught by Dr. Santrock himself: a pitiful class at UTD - Too much info for one semester, pompous instructor. Good lectures, informative, and well planned. Still, not a class I would recommend. And no, I don't have sour grapes. I passed the class with a B, while about 1/4 of the class dropped out, because of sheer frustration. My average at UTD was 3.75 and this class brought my grade average down.
2. Graduate - taught by a wonderful instructor who had to cut the material quite a bit to be able to teach it in one semester.
I realize this is a popular book, well-written and comprehensive, used by most major universities; yet, I maintain (and I am a teacher now myself) that the amount of info in this textbook is overwhelming for a one-semester class. Thus, it does not lend for effective and useful teaching.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loose leaf? You've got to be kidding! Jan. 13 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Loose Leaf
The publisher is too cheap to even bind the book and they charge students $168 for it? Unbelievable! Who ever heard of a loose leaf book? To keep it together it's necessary to buy a notebook separately, and that makes for a bulkier item to carry around. Content-wise it's relatively decent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Evaluating McGraw Hill's Decision to Cut Costs Aug. 6 2013
By Jean P - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Loose Leaf
I have used Santrock's texts in several editions. The books are loaded with content and research and have been of excellent quality. The publisher's decision to produce a 14th edition in a loose bound format coupled with smaller print on thinner paper stock is disappointing. This format detracts from the content, and the reduced quality of paper and printing render it a frail piece of merchandise. Will students actually be able to resell this ream of paper at the end of a term?

This is a required text book for my Developmental Psychology class. I will say the textbook's content seems to be fine and well organized... HOWEVER... Who's genius idea is a loose leaf text book?!?! The resale on this is going to take a bite out of this college student's pocket book.

This is one of the best lifespan books I have ever read but it is so dissapointing that it's not bound. For how expensive this book is, the spine should be bound.
