Publisher Comments:

LEARNING AND BEHAVIOR: ACTIVE LEARNING EDITION, Sixth Edition, is stimulating, interactive, and filled with high-interest queries and examples that will help you succeed in your course. Based on the theme that learning is a biological mechanism that aids survival, this book embraces a scientific approach to behavior but is written in a lucid, clear language that you will find engaging and easy to understand. The workbook, which is included at the back of every text, is like having a built-in study companion! The workbook focuses on the core concepts and vocabulary presented in the text, giving you an opportunity to master the content before your next exam.
