Resources with some cost (Not Required)

Study Guide to accompany Myer's Psychology - 7th, 8th, 9th, or 10th edition

Older Study Guides are available inexpensively through online booksellers and work just as well as newer versions. Although a study guide is NOT required, the MC questions that are in the study guide are either remarkably similar or the same as the ones on the test. The study guide is not only good for its practice tests, but for the "walk through the section" part which helps students find key facts in the material.


Psych2Go is a resource that accompanies your textbook. For 99 cents per chapter, or $9.99 for the book, you can access downloadable reviews, quizzes, and flashcards to help you review and master concepts for your course. It is NOT required, but may make studying and review more accessible. http://bcs.worthpublishers.com/Psych2Go/#
