'An excellent contemporary text from respective quantitative and qualitative focused authors, complementing each other to reflect the diversity of methodology available in psychological research.
The nature of scientific enquiry is explained clearly, together with ethical issues. A range of quantitative approaches (beyond the traditional experiment) and qualitative approaches (e.g. discourse analysis) are discussed and stages of research from planning to reporting are all covered to A-level standard and beyond. Overall, an excellent text for the eclectic researcher.'
Association of Teachers in Psychology (ATP).
