Do you want your students to just take psychology or to experience psychology? Experience Psychology is a complete learning system that empowers students to personally, critically, and actively experience the impact of psychology in everyday life. Experience Psychology is about, well, experience—our own behaviors; our relationships at home and in our communities, in school and at work; and our interactions in different learning environments. Grounded in meaningful real-world contexts, Experience Psychology’s contemporary examples, personalized author notes, and applied exercises speak directly to students, allowing them to engage with psychology and to learn verbally, visually, and experientially—by reading, seeing, and doing. With the Experience Psychology learning system, students do not just “take” psychology but actively experience it. Experience a Personalized Approach How many students think they know everything about introductory psychology but struggle on the first exam? LearnSmart, McGraw-Hill’s adaptive learning system, pinpoints students’ metacognitive abilities and limitations, identifying what they know—and more importantly, what they don’t know. Using Bloom’s Taxonomy and a highly sophisticated “smart” algorithm, LearnSmart creates a personalized, customized study plan that’s unique to each individual student’s demonstrated needs. With virtually no administrative overhead, instructors using LearnSmart are reporting an increase in student performance by a letter-grade or more. Throughout Experience Psychology, students find a wealth of personal pedagogical “asides” directly from Laura King to guide their understanding and stimulate their interest as they read. Some of these helpful notes highlight crucial terms and concepts; others prompt students to think critically about the complexities of the issues; other notes encourage students to apply what they have learned to their prior reading or to a new situation.

Connecting the study of cognition to everyday life in an unprecedented way, E. Bruce Goldstein’s COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CONNECTING MIND, RESEARCH, AND EVERDAY EXPERIENCE gives equal treatment to both the landmark studies and the cutting-edge research that define this fascinating field. The text employs a wealth of concrete examples and illustrations that help students understand the theories of cognition--driving home both the scientific importance of the theories and their relevance to students’ daily lives. Goldstein’s accessible narrative style blends with an art program that makes difficult concepts understandable. Students gain a true understanding of the behind the scenes activity that happens in the mind when humans do such seemingly simple activities as perceive, remember, or think. Goldstein’s also focuses on the behavioral and physiological approaches to cognition by including physiological materials in every chapter. As is typical of his work, this is a major revision that reflects the most current aspects of the field.
