  • This book is very thorough and informative and I will probably even keep it after my Abnormal Psychology class for reference sake, but like someone else in the reviews had said, it has way too much extra noise. This book has such a round about way of saying things and it can get very frustrating. It reminds me of the way I sometimes would write long essays for school and would just keep adding already stated information in different ways just to make the paper longer. Though to be fair, it does seem to have a lot of information which easily relates to the psychology field in practice.. You just have to sort through the extra useless sentences.

  • I like the fact that arrived on time. It was sold as used but the book was in excellent conditions. The professor discussed the entire book so it was money well spent. The only bad thing is the DSM IV data will be updated with the DSM V, making it kind of obsolete.

  • This was required reading for my graduate level counseling diagnosis class and one of the few textbooks I really enjoyed reading. The material is fascinating and presented in a very clear format.

  • Good quality

  • I needed this for a college class. Good text book. Not much else to say but it was required by teacher.

  • Deliver on time and described as online.

  • Very informative and detailed for this particular level of study.

  • I am satisfied with the purchase. Thank you I though that this book would be my class text book and ordered it in error But I decided to keep the book because the subject is the same just different authors.
