Whether it's designing a study, conducting an experiment, or analyzing the results, research methods are an integral part of Psychology. In this student-friendly introduction, Walker covers the different types of study, quantitative data, statistics and ethics. This book is the perfect tool to help build students' confidence in this vital area. This is one of six initial books to be published in the Palgrave Insights in Psychology series which is primarily intended to support A-Level students through their studies. It will cover the core topics in research methods and statistics that students will need for their course.

Although the book is not affiliated with a specific exam board, the author will ensure that the contents include all the topics commonly required by the various specifications so it is relevant for students. The level will be more in-depth than typical A-Level texts, encouraging students to explore the subject in more detail in order to obtain better grades. This broader coverage also means it will be suitable for undergraduate students as either supplementary or revision material.

Reviews:

"Ian Walker makes the basic topics in statistics accessible, providing interesting examples and explanations. A great A-level text or as a supplement for those Undergraduate students who feel less confident taking a statistics course for the first time." - Sarah Bayless, Lecturer in Psychology, University of Winchester

"I was unsure about studying psychology, but reading Research Methods and Statistics by Ian Walker put all these worries behind me. It is really well written and very readable- - all I can say is 'wow, amazing!'" - Jack Herbert, First Year Psychology student, University of Derby

About the Author:

IAN WALKER is Lecturer in Psychology and Director of Studies for Master of Research at the University of Bath, UK, and is co-author of Research with People (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009).
