Essentials of Psychology offers many of the signature features included in the Sixth Edition of Bernstein et al., such as Thinking Critically, Focus on Research, and Linkages, in a concise, 14 chapter format. Extensive pedagogical support and a renewed emphasis on active learning encourage students to master concepts through interaction with the material. In addition, the text content reflects the latest research, important in the field and of high interest to students.
The integrated pedagogical system helps students master the material using a PQ4R method: preview, question, read, recite, review, and reflect.
