APA College Dictionary of Psychology

First, there was the APA Dictionary of Psychology, then came the APA Concise Dictionary of Psychology. Coming May 1st is the next rendition of dictionaries from the American Psychological Association, the APA College Dictionary of Psychology.

The dictionary contains over 5000 entries, 200 of which were found by researching current college psychology texts. This version is designed to "answer the specific informational needs - from advanced placement high school psychology classes to introductory Psych 101 courses and beyond".

The appendix includes a brief description of approximately 180 important figures in the history of psychology.

The $19.95 plus shipping and handling charge makes this book significantly less expensive that the two previous versions.

While the book will be released on May 1st, the APA Book Order Department is now taking preorders for immediate shipment on that date. For more information or to order, go to
