Description de l'ouvrage

2 octobre 2012

Understanding psychological research by finding a problem, discovering the clues, and evaluating the evidence.

 

The Psychologist as Detectives introduces students to the research process. The authors treat psychological research as a detective case in which a problem is presented, clues are discovered, evidence is evaluated, and a report is prepared for consideration by peers.

 

Found within MySearchLab, or as a stand-alone, Operation ARA is a new “smart game” that teaches critical thinking and research methods in the context of a “save the world” story-line.

 

Learning Goals

Upon completing this book, readers will be able to:

  • Think critically about research and research methods
  • Analyze research as a problem solving procedure
  • Develop research skills by looking at examples of research studies
  • Evaluate evidence from a research study and prepare a report or summary of the case

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy to Read 26 février 2014
Par Steffanie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
The chapters are easy to read and short enough to not get bored of. The order of the information in the book versus the lay out in the class does not match up. I suggest getting as far into it as possible before class starts if you take this course. Besides that, as far as textbooks go, this one is pleasant.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Good content, bad binding (Paperback) 31 janvier 2014
Par Steven - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
It got here on time and was the correct one for my class but the book itself doesn't hold up very well. I'm about half way through my class and I've had two of the pages fall out during normal use. I've glued them back in with super glue but still. This book needs to be made with a better binding so the pages don't fall out.

First Class Books sent me the teachers version of this book, the ISBN's did not match up with amazons so i could not sell this book back like I originally planned. I wasted money because FirstClassBooks made a mistake, I called their customer service center and they told me theres nothing I can do... what a joke.

I read it while she was taking the Research in Psychology course, and it was an easy read. The course used the book to support the instruction and not the other way around.

My university required me to purchase the hard copy of this book; however, I bought this copy for a third of the cost they were charging. I'm very happy I came across it.
