Product Description

Review

Critical Thinking for Psychology addresses one of the hottest topics in contemporary psychology, that of the importance of robust critical thinking as a skill necessary for underpinning scientific endeavour. Engaging, relevant and refreshingly waffle–free, Forshaw s focus on polite scepticism encourages the reader to take the critic out of critical thinking and offers credible and practical advice on how best to develop and apply creative and common–sense critical thought to literature evaluation, essay writing and making the most of feedback.
Nikki Newhouse, Editor of PsychTalk Magazine

An essential component of all psychology degrees is described, explained and developed in a cogent and practical manner: An excellent text for all undergraduate students.
Professor Dominic Upton, University of Worcester

As a second year student doing a psychology degree this is a great read. really insightful and lets you know what is expected of you as a student writing essays and completing assignments. It explains common errors made by students, tips and then gives you examples at the end of poor vs excellent work. A must for any psychology student. the reason i didnt give it 5 stars was because sometimes the language used seemed a bit alien so i found i had to do a bit of research whilst reading it - but hey, i suppose that is what being a student is all about :-)
