Thoroghout Exploring Psychology 9th Edition you will experience the merge of rigorous science with a broad human perspective that engages both mind and heart. For this edition, 1061 researchers and teaching psychologists, plus 251 students have been involved, in efforts to gather accurate and up-to-date information about the field of psychology and the content, study aids, and supplements needs of instructors and students in the introductory course.
This Exploring Psychology 9th Edition by David Myers is the most carefully reworked and extensively updated of all the revisions to date. This new edition features improvements to the organization and presentation, especially to our system of supporting student learning and remembering.
The new learning system harnesses the testing effect, which documents the benefits of actively retrieving information through self-testing. Thus, each chapter now offers 15 to 20 new Retrieve It questions interspersed throughout. Creating these desirable difficulties for students along the way optimizes the testing effect, as does immediate feedback. In addition to the new study aids and updated coverage, existing chapters have also been carefully reorganized. For example, the contents of the previous edition’s Nature, Nurture, and Human Diversity chapter are now integrated throughout the text, including in Chapters 2, 4, 5, 12, and 13. Clinical Chapters Were Carefully Reviewed , chock full of new photos and illustrations, provides a modern visual context for the book’s up-todate coverage.
Despite all the exciting changes, this new edition retains its predecessors’ voice, as well as much of the content and organization. It also retains the goals—the guiding principles—that have animated the previous eight editions.
