This revised edition of Tischler's INTRODUCTION TO SOCIOLOGY continues a tradition of providing a proven and comprehensive textbook to students and professors at a lower, very reasonable price. With its built in study guide, practice tests, and available access to SociologyNow, no other textbook on the market provides students with a complete suite of study aids at an affordable price as INTRODUCTION TO SOCIOLOGY. Tischler is known for providing full coverage of sociological concepts in a student-friendly manner, and threading two basic ideas throughout the text- 1) sociology is a rigorous, scientific discipline and 2) a basic knowledge of sociology is essential for understanding social interaction in many work and social settings. Each chapter progresses from a specific to a general analysis of society - each part introducing increasingly comprehensive factors necessary for a broad-based understanding of social organization.
I recommend this book for the CLEP Exam
By Mallow on Apr 14, 2007
In addition to the exam study guide through the College Board, this book was my primary study material for the Intro to Sociology CLEP Exam. Of 100 questions, I only ran across 3-4 that covered material not in the book. Note: I think Tischler focused really well on concepts, but not as well on contributors to the science. Accordingly, I spent additional time on Wikipedia for some of the bigger names associated with Socioligy (ie, Cooley, Mead, Weber, etc). Overall, it was an informative read and I feel like I came away with a comprehensive handle on the major concepts of the field. (PST: I passed the exam with flying colors!)
This book is a keeper.

There are some books you don't mind listing back with Amazon to sell, however, this book is one to keep. It is very easy to understand and covers all the introductory aspects of Sociology.

Since I paid for a 2-day service, I received it in 2 days. Book came brand new. I also found this book to be more expensive on all the other book sites for college books. Lastly it was available when at the other sites they were either sold out or on back order the week classes started.

This textbook is very readable. It helps you gain a basic understanding of sociology. In case any students out there are wondering, chapters are about 20 to 30 pages.
