Requiring My Psych Lab was much better than requiring students to purchase merely a textbook, as it facilitates learning, not just memorization. Even though I'm generally a crammer by nature, it still helped a lot, and I imagine it helped a lot of other students even more. (Spring 2005)

Overall, I thought that My Psych Lab was very helpful. It was the main tool that I used to study for our exams. When I did not do well on a certain area, it clearly showed me the things that I needed to work on. All of the practice tests really helped me to narrow down what I needed to study for the test. I am very glad that we were able to use My Psych Lab as a tool in this class. (Fall 2005)
I really enjoyed using My Psych Lab. The program was very beneficial to me and it really helped me to learn the material for the test. It also helped with my understanding of each unit and presented information that I did not understand in a new way. I wish that every class had a program like this one, it was very helpful in many different ways. (Fall 2005)
Each time I used My Psych Lab my grade improved. It was obvious what chapters I studied for using the program and which ones I did not. My Psych Lab was a very beneficial and key element to helping me to understand this class. (Fall 2005)
