About the Series

Routledge Modular Psychology

The Routledge Modular Psychology series is a completely new approach to introductory level psychology, tailor made to the new modular style of teaching.

The Routledge modular texts are all user friendly and accessible and include the following features:

  • Practice essays with specialist commentary to show how to achieve a higher grade
