Finally, a text on research methods whose versatility, thoroughness, and hands-on approach is exciting for instructors and students alike . . . a perfect choice as a main text or supplement in variety of courses. Psychology instructors will appreciate this useful handbook not only for their methods courses, but also for any course with a laboratory or research component.
