'The strength of this book is in the determined approach it takes to helping the reader learn the subject matter by the inclusion of explanations of key terms and exercises. If coupled with tutorial support, this will encourage students to work harder at the subject matter - always a challenge in what many students perceive as the least accessible and interesting part of psychology. It is well worth considering as a core methods text for undergraduates or for masters students new to psychology'- John Hegarty, Times Higher Educational Supplement, Textbook Guide

With a broad range of support materials and features it is the ideal textbook to accompany both a first and second year course.
