Summary
"This handbook provides a brief but thorough introduction to the most commonly used research methods in psychology (as well as a number of related topics such as statistics, ethics, and literature searches). The book includes much of the same information presented in longer texts, but in a more succinct format. After reading each chapter on a methodology, a student will be able to identify significant advantages and disadvantages of each approach and be able to carry out a project using each method. The book has been written for students with no previous research background and at a level easily understandable by college sophomores."--
