RESEARCH METHODS AND STATISTICS: A CRITICAL THINKING APPROACH, 3e, successfully illustrates the integration between statistics and research methods by demonstrating the ways to use statistics in analyzing data collected during research. Jackson's combined text adopts an inviting narrative style that draws you into the material, helping you overcome the initial apprehension you may feel at having to learn both subject areas at once. She incorporates a student-friendly critical-thinking approach and presents examples and exercises to which you can relate. Jackson focuses on the logic of the process and the methodology aspect of research.

Review:

"The major strength of the text is the ease of comprehension of the text which is important for our general track students taking the one semester statistics and research course. In general, each of the chapters is broken into subsections which may reduce the anxiety factor that many of our general track students experience."

"The writing style is very good and the connections between chapters is well done. The introductory remarks before each chapter do a fine job of tying information from previous chapters to the current chapter."

"The author has done an excellent job of presenting rather difficult material at a level undergraduate psychology students can understand. Many of the competing texts of this type give short shift to difficult statistical issues, it is refreshing to see coverage of statistics done so well."

"I would definitely conclude from what I have read to this point that the critical thinking approach the author has chosen to use is a smash success."
