Reviews - What do customers think about Developmental Psychology (Cliffs Quick Review)?
Not Helpful Jul 14, 2003
This study guide is really a mini-textbook without an index. It's small enough to omit lots of info you may need, and without an index you can't easily pick out what might be useful. So it's not very helpful.
Rather than buy it, get a copy of Gormly & Brodzinsky's LIFESPAN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT. It's a textbook that is clearly written. My copy is from 1989, so it is dated. But I find it helpful when my lecture notes are cryptic, or when the assigned text starts sagging from the weight of its academic verbiage.
