Book News Annotation:

Domjan (psychology, University of Texas-Austin) offers a concise summary of the essentials of conditioning and learning, for students and professionals. The book can serve as the primary source for an introductory course on conditioning and learning, or as a supplemental text for courses in behavior modification, behavioral neuroscience, special education, and related areas. The book can also be used to provide the foundations for an advanced course in which students are required to read a collection of specialized articles. Key points, chapter summaries, practice questions, and terms are included.
