A new addition to the best-selling Making Sense series, Making Sense in Psychology is an indispensable research and writing guide for students in psychology. Specifically designed to help psychology students gather information about the kinds of topics they will encounter in their courses,
this book offers up-to-date, detailed information on writing essays, research proposals, and lab reports; conducting research; evaluating Internet sources; APA guidelines; avoiding plagiarism; studying for tests and exams; delivering oral presentations; and more. Maintaining the same clear,
straightforward style of the other books in the series, this comprehensive guide is an invaluable resource for students throughout their academic careers and beyond.
"The text covers all of the major challenges students who take psychology will face when it comes to preparing written and even oral presentations of their work, or the work of others. The writing style is also easy to follow, manages to keep the reader engaged, and offers multiple examples to illustrate the main issues students will have to address in order to excel on their psychology assignments." --Karen Brebner, St. Francis Xavier University
