Perfect as a main text or as a supplement, this versatile handbook is ideal for psychology courses devoted specifically to research methods as well as for more general psychology courses with a research component. Each chapter independently covers a commonly used research method, giving instructors the flexibility to assign chapters in a way that meets the needs of their own classes. Chapter outlines, concept questions and exercises (along with a selected set of answers), lists of important terms and concepts, and clearly written explanations of basic statistical techniques supplemented with illustrative statistical tables are among the book s many outstanding features. Basic guidelines of how to write, format, and publish results demonstrate an astute, hands-on approach to conducting research in psychology. Schweigert s clear, succinct writing style, her focus on the fundamentals of research design, and her thorough coverage engage students who are at varying levels of exposure to research methods. In the end, all students will learn to embrace the ethics and process of collecting and presenting useful, accurate data.
