BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES STAT is an engaging and accessible solution to accommodate the diverse lifestyles of today’s learners at a value-based price. Each section begins with a review of previously discussed concepts and then throughout the section important points are emphasized by a “REMEMBER” summary reminder set off from the text. Key terms are bold and in color and graphs and diagrams are explained in captions and fully integrated into the discussion. Using What You Know sections at the end of each section asks students to apply their new knowledge to real problems. Instructors receive a section outline, learning outcomes, teaching tips, additional examples, key terms, and key formulas.
