Ships from and sold by D M Books Store. And albeit, once I got past the learning curve that is this book's terminology, there was some interesting information to be reaped; but very inefficiently. As a student who's just beginning to learn terminology and basic concepts about ABA I find it a bit baffling that this is a "go-to" book for the first course for an MA course. Now then, the oxymoron? The book is called "Learning", but the way the information is presented inhibits learning.

Explores the continuities between human learning and the learning of other animals

Explores the continuities between human learning and the learning of other animals. The book organizes the phenomena of learning in a systematic way, moving from Behavior Without Learning (evolution) to Learning Without Words (basics in nonhuman behavior and learning) to Learning With Words (human learning and memory).

Lists with This Book. Charles A. Lindbergh. The book provided a good understanding of his youth and his activities which lead up to this historic flight. It is well written and enjoyable to read. He had to learn how to have grace under pressure and operate in a celebrity world that he was ill fitted for. After Dwight Morrow's death he entered a scientific world that was resurrected from his early life. And then he became fascinated with Pre WWII Germany and the rise of Hitler's.

Beautiful book
  • Bremar
Awesome, thank you!
  • Celak
This book is a requirement for a class I'm taking. It is a good book and very useful in understanding the concepts. Sometimes it seems redundant, but that helps to enhace comprehension.
  • Boraston
This book is a basic book of the processes and functions of learning behavior, the relationships of behavior and environment with learning, and how to understanding learning from a behavioral prospective. It does not read like the average "text book." It is actually written in everyday language with simple explanations for the introduced concepts including easy-to-remember examples.
  • Visonima
Very complicated terminology-used for a psych class.
  • Scoreboard Bleeding
Concise and excellently well written, the text is easily understood but still technical and references relevant research for almost all mentioned concepts.

I had to have this textbook for a course, and it was one of the most miserable reading experiences in my graduate school career. I am used to scientific writing. By normal science textbook standards, this book is severely deficient. Words are bolded and italicized based not upon the importance of the word, but rather the spoken emphasis of the sentence. This means that you have no idea which terms are directly important for the topic. Definitions are sorely lacking, and the only saving grace are the occasional charts that compare/contrast related terms. Explanations are very wordy and accomplish in two pages what could have been accomplished in a single paragraph. This reads more like a philosophy text, with Catania seemingly stretching his circumlocutory muscles for show.
I have used the Learning text by Charles A. Catania for many years now in undergraduate as well as graduate Principles of Learning courses. I find the text an excellent source for teaching students the technical terminology and basic learning principles, and exposing them to important studies in the field. The text is very clearly written and absolutely informative. The text includes many research studies that the learning student must be familiar with in a clear and comprehensive fashion. These studies and their context are described very clearly, providing the reader with an excellent exposure the basic findings and principles in the field. The glossary in the back of the book is tremendously helpful in developing an understanding of the terminology. This textbook is, in my opinion, an essential must have for any student in the field of Learning.
