To the student
How to Get the Most From Your Psychology Text for the AP® Course The Advanced Placement® (AP®) psychology course represents a wonderful opportunity for you to be challenged by the rigor of a collegelevel course, while learning life-relevant, mind-expanding concepts from the humanly significant discipline of psychology. Our unwavering vision for this text has been to merge rigorous science with a broad human perspective that engages both mind and heart. We aim to offer a state-ofthe-art introduction to psychological science that speaks to your needs and interests. We aspire to help you understand and appreciate the wonders of your everyday life. And we seek to convey the inquisitive spirit with which psychologists do psychology.
This third edition continues to build on our trademark: a readable, relatable textbook that effectively prepares students for the AP® psychology exam by keeping true to the College Board® course description, with new research and student-relevant discoveries throughout. We aim for clear and concise explanations and a conversational tone that hopefully encourages you to read, and enjoy, the content. The third edition is organized by units and modules. Each unit corresponds to the fourteen key topics in the College Board® outline for the AP® psychology course. Within each unit, we have divided the content into short, manageable modules that provide bite-sized chunks of content to study. Each module is organized by clear and measurable Learning 52 Targets that orient you to the material you are about to read and allow you to “check off” each objective as you master it.
Be sure to take advantage of all that this text has to offer. You can learn a lot by simply reading the text, but you will develop deeper understanding by completing the many Review Questions and self assessment activities along the way. The walkthrough guide on pages xxv–xxviii gives you an inside look at the important features of the text. In Unit I, we discuss the importance of “retrieving” what you’ve read and then “reviewing” what you’ve learned by testing yourself. Researchers have found that self-testing, and regularly engaging with “desirable difficulties” are great ways to learn and remember. This book offers many different types of self-tests and learning opportunities for you:
Check Your Understanding boxes, found at the end of major sections of text, include Ask Yourself questions, which encourage you to apply new concepts to your own experiences (thus making them more
meaningful and memorable) and Test Yourself questions (with answers in Appendix E) that assess mastery and encourage big-picture thinking.
Try This feature sprinkled throughout the text allow you to connect more deeply with the concepts you’re learning by putting them into real life practice. Module Review Questions appear at the end of each module. Try the Multiple-Choice Questions that address the key concepts from each Learning Target, as well as a Practice FRQ (Free-Response Question) to assess your mastery of the module’s content.
Unit Review Questions offer a cumulative assessment on concepts learned throughout the entire unit.
The Practice AP®-Style Exam at the end of the book covers material learned throughout the entire course and simulates the real AP® psychology exam.
