Présentation de l'éditeur
Understanding psychological research by finding a problem, discovering the clues, and evaluating the evidence.

The authors include several real-life examples to illustrate the material presented. The text itself is wonderfully written. Everything is very clear, but also very concise. Along with the examples (which are well used and helpful), the authors keep the subject readable by including a few witty remarks and observations. The text ranges from the simple steps of the scientific method to the construction of factorial designs and three-way ANOVAs. All of it is broken down to be accessible and interesting enough to keep a student's attention.
What's left is a simple, easy to understand guide on how the experimental method works in psychology.
