This Psychology 10th Edition PDF Ebook Free Full Download 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 Retrieval Practice questions interspersed throughout. Creating these desirable difficulties for students along the way optimizes the testing effect, as does immediate feedback (via inverted answers beneath each question). In addition, each main section of text in Psychology 10th Edition Myers PDF begins with numbered questions that establish learning objectives and direct student reading. The Chapter Review section repeats these questions as a further self-testing opportunity (with answers in the Complete Chapter Reviews appendix). The Chapter Review section also offers a page-referenced list of key terms and concepts.
With helpful guidance from clinical psychologist colleagues, Myers Psychology 10th Edition has strengthened the clinical perspective, which has improved the Personality, Psychological Disorders, and Therapy chapters, among others. For example, it covers problem-focused and emotionfocused coping strategies and the relationship of psychotherapy to cancer survival in the Stress and Health chapter, and the Intelligence chapter describes how psychologists use intelligence tests in clinical settings. Material from today’s positive psychology is also woven throughout.
To help students maximize their reading, studying, and exam preparation efforts, a new student preface offers time management guidance.
Psychology 10th Edition PDF free download presents an even more thoroughly cross-cultural perspective on psychology reflected in research findings, and text and photo examples. Coverage of the psychology of women and men is thoroughly integrated. Discussion of the relevance of cultural and gender diversity begins on the first page of the first chapter and continues throughout the text. Chapter 4, Nature, Nurture, and Human Diversity, provides focused coverage, encouraging students to appreciate cultural and gender differences and commonalities, and to consider the interplay of nature and nurture.
The writing in every chapter of Myers Psychology has been tightened, with fewer overlapping examples and consolidated coverage of some topics (for example, including all of the deaf experience coverage in one chapter rather than spreading it across two). The net result, despite 1400 new citations, is some 35 fewer pages than in the ninth edition.
