Dr Joy Coogan, University of East London

 

 

This book provides students with a wide range of research and study skills necessary for achieving a successful classification on a psychology degree course. It replaces the stress and fear experienced when encountering essays, reports, statistics and exams with a sense of confidence, enthusiasm and even fun.

 

Sieglinde McGee presents indispensable instruction, advice and tips on note making and note taking, evaluating academic literature, writing critical essays, preparing for and doing essay and MCQ exams, understanding research methods and issues associated with conducting research, writing and presenting reports and research and also some important computer skills. Examples provided will show how to score well on assignments and exams and also the sort of approach, layout, errors, omissions or answer-style that would achieve a lower grade. Practical exercises and interactive tasks are integrated throughout to clarify key points and give the students a chance to practise on their own.

 

This is a useful resource for students taking modules in study and research skills in psychology and an essential guide for all other students studying on psychology programmes.

 

Dr Sieglinde McGee is an Associate of the School of Psychology at Trinity College, Dublin, where she taught for several years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading! 27 Aug 2013
By Maria - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are about to start out in college, or even if you have already got a few years under your belt, this book is a valuable resource. Even though it is aimed particularly at psychology students, it contains a lot of material that will assist any student. Whether you want to know about study strategies and exam preparation, or how to write an academic essay this book is for you.
I tutor first-year psychology students, and I have found that this book can give them an advantage. It is written in plain english, and enables them to come to terms with the demands of studying at third level.
So if you want to give yourself a head start, buy this book! You won't be sorry!
