Product Description

Review

"This book is very well written...I think that the new, more advanced material will increase its usefulness to students at a later level in their undergraduate studies...In fact, it is brimming with good advice." - David Clark-Carter, Staffordshire University "It is friendly, accessible and a text which students can turn to when they are in trouble late at night...students should find this text a trusty and reliable friend which will stand by them as they labour through their reports." - Hugh Coolican, Coventry University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is excellent. It really helped me to write a Psychology level 2 asignment, which I gained a brilliant mark for. Very useful for people who have trouble with quantitative reports and find them very boring. Also very useful in helping to understand statistical outcomes from SPSS. The book goes over everything from Level 1 and I'm sure will help me in my dissertation!

This book offers a clear and concise guide to anyone who needs to put across an experiment. As a psychology student I found it an essential guide to let me know what to focus on and what not to agonise over! A top buy.

I'm currently in my 2nd year of a Psychology & Criminology degree and ordered this book at the beginning of the year and it has been the most useful book I have purchased. I can't believe the university didn't recommend us to buy it. The book has all the steps for analysing data and how to do it as well as how to correctly write it up for your report. The book is a nice small size and fits easily into a bag without adding too much weight and the online guide is really useful as it gives you more detail and saves you carrying a huge book around everywhere. I really wish I'd had this book during my first year, a definite recommend for psychology students!

Essential for any student embarking on a Psychology degree is "Designing and Reporting Experiments" (Peter Harris, 1986). Despite the age of the original issue, this text is still very relevant. Purchase this volume prior to, or early on in, the first year of degree. Don't make the mistake I did and wait until entering year three - as at least one grade point will be deducted during year two for assignments entered with incorrect referencing and/or statistical reporting. A must!!
