Psychology: Learning & Teaching
'Every psychology department and university library should have a neat row of copies of this impressive handbook...this is one of those rare books that manage to surpass their blurb - no mean feat: "All of the chapters offer a state of the art review of the area concerned, evaluate achievements to date and map trajectories for future research'. I couldn't agree more!'
