HASH(0xa78a9b4c) out of 5 stars Very Sketchy June 3 2005
By RAng - Published on
Format: Paperback
I couldn't agree more that this text is, to put it kindly, sketchy. I don't know what level it is meant for, but I'm using it in graduate school, and frankly, it isn't telling me anything I didn't learn back in Intro to Psych 101. It also appears very choppy within sections and you can tell where updates were stuck in and not well-integrated. (I always love the shoehorned-in references to women or minorities, not just a crime of this book, however.) It's also poorly written in spots, as I'm reading about something I already know and the explanation is about as clear as mud. I feel sorry for people who haven't learned some of the material elsewhere. As I will be facing this material on a licensing exam, I am in the market for another book - one that might teach me something I didn't learn in high school/freshman year in college.

HASH(0xa78a9ba0) out of 5 stars Evaluating McGraw Hill's Decision to Cut Costs Aug. 6 2013
By Jean P - Published on
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?

HASH(0xa78a9fd8) out of 5 stars loose leaf book?!??!? July 9 2013
By Magen Martin - Published on
Format: Loose Leaf Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0xa78a9fc0) out of 5 stars A look into self read March 28 2011
By Kay67 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was required for a class that I am taking, and it is an absolutely must read for all of us who wonder why people behave the way they do in their adult like. Well it starts from infancy and continues on into the adult years. It proves the saying, "twice a child, once an adult." This book is a good easy read. I will keep this book for future references.

HASH(0xa6ca039c) out of 5 stars Too much info for a one-course textbook. March 1 2013
By IloveAmazon - Published on
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.
