Required Software & Accounts

EVERNOTE: In order to access course lecture notes, study guides, and assignments, you will need an Evernote Account.

You can get one month of Premium for free by using this link to sign up for your Evernote Account. You can get additional "free" months of Premium by purchasing products that come with Evernote subscriptions, such as an Evernote Moleskine Smart notebook or scribbler.

I have a limited number of copies of the text available for rental if you are unable to afford a new textbook. Please contact me for more information. If you are struggling to afford your textbooks, an alternative textbook option for Social Psychology is available online, for free. It is an Open Access textbook and can be found here. Please note that the course lectures and exams will be based on the assigned text above, Social Psychology, 4th Edition, by Gilovich, Keltner, Chen & Nisbett. If you opt to use the Open Access (Free) textbook instead, it will be your responsibility to determine whether there are any important differences between the two textbooks and to plan your studying accordingly by accessing the required text at the Library or through a classmate.
