An Introduction to Applied Cognitive Psychology offers an accessible review of recent research in the application of cognitive methods, theories, and models. Using real-world scenarios and engaging everyday examples this book offers clear explanations of how the findings of cognitive psychologists have been put to use.

Written by well-respected experts in the field, this textbook will appeal to all undergraduate students of cognitive psychology, as well as professionals working in the areas covered in the book, such as education, police work, sport, and music.

Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published on UniedVRG. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:
⭐ I’m currently reading this book for my applied cognition class online and its one of the dryest textbook I’ve ever read. It goes into way too much detail on trivial facts that really don’t help further the understanding of concepts. It feels like they had to meet a page quota so they just restate the same useless details several times. The book is British so the majority of examples are on the British population and the writing style also reflects that. If you’re an American professor considering using this book for your class please don’t its very hard to relate to and the writing style is very odd.
⭐ Bought for class. Well written, newer research references.
⭐ Used for my Introduction to Perception and Cognition Class
⭐ Awesome quality and a great reference for cognitive psychology.
⭐ Great book.
