Written for a research methods course that follows a preliminary statistics course. Author David Pittenger's insight that students who studied statistics first had not mastered that subject lead to writing a methods text that reviews and integrates statistical discussions with that of research design. Employing an informal style with interesting everyday examples, Pittenger emphasizes that good psychological research allows us to answer many practical questions related to improving the quality of life.
