  1. The textbook so far is good but behavior modification these days are now being known as behavioral analysis. The questions on the end of each chapters are very helpful for reviews of chapter as well as a quick quiz at the end of the textbook for each chapter.

    The material itself can be hard for understanding but the professors make it worst based on my experience. You are better off reading this book, studying this book and get the same information in a better, detailed way than a professor may.

  2. Textbooks are expensive and although I had the Ebook, I had to resort to the hard cover since it was easier to find material in it. I am not disappointed and although I do endorse Ebook rentals for school, I have to say used text books is the way to go. It arrived well before the promised date.

  3. this book is extremely well written and easy to understand. the examples given in the book aren’t abstract, like in some textbooks, and can actually be found in real life. this book is enjoyable to read, which says a lot for a textbook.

  4. Good book with a lot of information on behaviors. Great for learning an overview of behaviors, decent review book if you already know material. As an educator, I feel like this is a beneficial part of my collection.

  5. This book was well written, had great example, and was just filled with the information I needed. I also liked the practice tests at the end.

  6. I tried to rent this book from another website, however when it arrived it was in very poor shape. I ended up returning that one and renting this one from Amazon which not only got to me in record time for me to use for my class but was in perfect condition! It worked out really well since we have to use it in class everyday; definitely a 5 star rating

  7. I really like this book. It is very straightforward and I believe the examples the author gives are detailed enough to help readers understand the concept without being too complex. Miltenberger breaks up the concepts well, the chapters are a quick read and I still put it down feeling like I understand the material. It takes me about 20-30 minutes for most chapters and I highlight as I go. I just highlight what feels like is fundamental/important to the concepts, then when I look at the chapter summaries, its exactly what I highlighted. To me that is a hallmark of a well written textbook.

    Overall I really love this book. The material isn’t dumbed down at all, but the author doesn’t make it overly complex to prove how smart he is like some behavior mod textbooks I’ve had in the past have felt like. One of my favorite textbooks.

  8. I needed this book for my classes. However, it will be used throughout my career. It is an expensive book but, I am pleased with it and it is well worth every penny. I only wish it would have been offered in a hard copy version 🙁 ……. I searched for a hard copy version but I could not find one (it was not an option).
    Anyway, I am grateful for all the knowledge it is filled with and would recommend this book to anyone going into the field of behavior analysis.
