“If there were a "Who's Who" of outstanding teachers of psych, it would include most, or perhaps all, of the authors of the chapters of this book. They are not only teachers, but also scholars of teaching, who have useful advice for both novice and experienced teachers of psychology.”
"The Psychology Research Handbook: A Primer for Graduate Students and Research Assistants, Second Edition, edited by Fred Leong and James Austin, fully fulfills its mission to provide graduate students with knowledge of the entire research process from thinking about research, formulating a design, conducting the research, and publishing a paper. But the book and its many contributors do much more. In explaining the research process to students, the authors help to demystify why things are done they way they are, to understand the logic of science, and to appreciate the research endeavor - tasks that are often not conveyed in graduate programs. The Handbook makes an important and valuable contribution to graduate education."
Best book for the course.
Perfect for grad student level
Great book. Broad in scope. Have used it for two years in my dissertation preparation course.
I adopted a different textbook with a more theoretical focus. However, as the semester progressed, I regretted that decision; students would have benefited from this practical guide. Thus, I will adopt this book when I teach the course again, likely Spring 2014.
The level of this text is too sophisticated for use in my Research in Psychology course.
A very thorough and user friendly book.
Great book and continuing resource for graduate students and early career researchers.
