I like the way that different authors have contributed to the textbook. I think it is presented coherently and benefits from having each chapter written by an expert in that field

This book provides an excellent introduction to both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, and also includes informative overviews of the many analyses and statistical procedures that are typically taught at undergraduate level. The text manages to be both comprehensive and accessible, with useful exercises to challenge and test the reader′s knowledge. This book is very enlightening for both students and tutors alike

Excellent coverage! Students prefer it because they only need the one book. Covers all they need really
Dr Maria Kontogianni

This 4th edition of Breakwell′s Research Methods in Psychology is truly exceptional. Broad coverage of diverse methods with down-to-earth, jargon-free explanations that make clear not only the how but also the why of research methods. Students will come away with deeper appreciation of the thoroughness and value of scientific research in Psychology. One of the most accessible and comprehensive textbooks of its kind, this book is likely to engage the budding scientist in most students
