When I was using the REA study guide for Psychology, I ran into trouble because I was not seeing how you could use the terms or examples in every-day situations- I read but, I couldn't apply. When I used, I was happy to see that I could understand AND apply to situations through the clear examples.

I used as my main resource to study. Occasionally I would go onto wikipedia and look up interesting facts about things that I wanted to know more about. However, definitely had all the materials needed to pass the exam.
