Students in research methods classes often ask for "real" examples of the concepts & methods presented in the textbook & lectures, as well as for additional practice applying the research tools given to them. This book provides students with concrete examples of what to them are often abstract ideas, and gives students the kinds of practical experiences that aid understanding of research methods ... Some instructors may find it reasonable to use the book without an accompanying research methods text. The present text also could be used as part of a laboratory class or in a statistics class that emphasizes relationships between research methods & data analysis ... In order to complete the problems and exercises related to data analysis, students will need to have been introduced previously to the use of statistics in psychology or, minimally, they need to be taking a statistics course concurrently. Many of the statistical problems can be done using information found in Appendix A of the text ... may find it necessary to have available a statitics book ... encourage students to use a statistical software package. -Pref.
