Covering all the major concepts and theories while still presenting the exciting and practical applications of psychology is a challenge. In order to meet this challenge, Huffman presents a fully integrated package that sets the stage for a perfectly choreographed learning experience. It includes a pedagogical system that makes psychology easier to learn. Readers will also find a robust suite of multimedia learning resources, including animations, interactive exercises, simulations and virtual experiments, and brief video clips. Psychologists can use the ninth edition as a reference for the theories and concepts.
