The brief introductory text by Nevid, Essentials of Psychology: Concepts and Applications retains the hallmark features that have made its parent text unique in the market, while offering a more manageable, student-friendly format. This text's organization breaks down each chapter into smaller instructional units organized around a set of key concepts in a particular area of study. Essentials of Psychology: Concepts and Applications provides a broad view of psychology that includes the history, methods of research, major theories, and research findings of the discipline as well as applications of the knowledge gained from contemporary research to the problems and challenges we face in today's world. Jeffrey Nevid has shaped an effective learning tool in this text by basing its contents on a comprehensive learning system derived from research on memory, learning, and textbook pedagogy. This learning model incorporates what Nevid has named the Four Es--Engaging Student Interest, Encoding Information, Elaborating Meaning, and Evaluating Progress--as key elements that organize the text's pedagogical features.Did You Know That... chapter-opening questions give students a preview of the material to be presented in the chapter to help them develop focus and interest as they read.Try This Out hands-on exercises encourage students to apply psychology theories to their own experiences.Concept Signaling feature extracts key concepts from the text content, highlights them in the margins of the text, and numbers them consecutively through each chapter, helping students to encode and retain key concepts. Concept Charts appear in each module, summarizing and reviewing the keyconcepts in a tabular form. Application Modules, the final modules of each chapter, illustrate how psychologists apply the knowledge they have gained from their research to real-life problems. Concept Checks are short quizzes at the end of each module.Additional features include Tying It Together sections, Summing-Up sections, and Thinking Critically About Psychology.PsychAssist and web icons in the text margins correlate the text material with animations and other web-based learning tools.
