    One of the best books on the market for research methods in psychology. Thoroughly well written, it’s an easily accessible book that works well to make complicated aspects of the subject much easier to understand. If you’re someone who struggles with the methodology section of psychology I would recommend giving this book a read as it works well to help you understand the topic.

    This was a pretty good textbook. The thing I probably utilized most and found the most helpful were the diagrams throughout the chapters that differentiated the similar concepts to make them more understandable and separate instead of confusing them as the same things. The writing itself was fairly easy to comprehend and it was jam-packed with examples of real studies to support every concept it was explaining. The only minor complaint I have about this textbook was that sometimes instead of givi This was a pretty good textbook.

The writing itself was fairly easy to comprehend and it was jam-packed with examples of real studies to support every concept it was explaining. The only minor complaint I have about this textbook was that sometimes instead of giving an actual definition for hard-to-define concepts, it would just give an example of it happening. Examples are useful, but I, personally, need those foundational definitions for things so it's easier for me to generalize them to other studies besides just the ones it would use in the example. For those things that it didn't provide definitions for, it's a little harder for me to comprehend them and know when to identify them in any other research. Other than that, this was a great textbook. If you ever have to read it for your Research Methods in Psychology class, you will be well off.

    This textbook is exactly what it says it is: a very comprehensible introduction to research methodology in psychology. Guided expertly by my fantastic professor, I managed to get an 8 on the exam. Every textbook has its flaws, but overall this book contained very clear explanations of key terms and methods, as well as clarifying examples for everything discussed. Maybe too many examples, but it drives the point home. Some things are a little less clearly explained, like mixed factorial design, bu This textbook is exactly what it says it is: a very comprehensible introduction to research methodology in psychology.

Maybe too many examples, but it drives the point home. Some things are a little less clearly explained, like mixed factorial design, but a good lecturer easily makes up for it. One thing to keep in mind is that ironically after the chapter on ethics and data falsification, the book still uses an example from Brian Wansink's studies, who has a questionable reputation in that very regard.

    3/5 stars I found this textbook to be extremely repetitive and felt that many of the chapters could be condensed down. I understand that some of the information being provided is complex, but I feel the publisher severely underestimated the intelligence of the target readers. Further, the textbook goes over some pretty basic information that you would reasonably already know coming into a research methods class. I've seen the curriculum and pre-reqs for psych research methods for four different 3/5 stars I found this textbook to be extremely repetitive and felt that many of the chapters could be condensed down.

Further, the textbook goes over some pretty basic information that you would reasonably already know coming into a research methods class. I've seen the curriculum and pre-reqs for psych research methods for four different universities and all of them require stats first, while this might not be 100% generalizable, I feel like it's pretty safe to say that there didn't need to be constant reminders of what a p value or 2x2x2 experimental design is. If it was less repetitive and didn't do so much review, I feel like the book could've been around 200 pages (and thus also a lot cheaper).

    For not having the most exciting subject matter, this text did a great job of explaining concepts in interesting ways. I really appreciated the way that the authors used examples to illustrate their points, and carried those examples throughout each chapter. It definitely made the text more engaging.

    Ya know...I actually liked this book, for the most part, considering it was an assigned reading for a class. Despite being forced to learn the information within, I kind of liked some aspects to this book. For example,the author used interesting examples to get her point across. I also just liked learning more about the research aspect in Psychology. Sue me for that, oh wait, please dont. XD

    For a textbook, it was pretty good. I appreciated the wealth of examples. The book had strong organization and touched on the most important ideas from my class. I thought it was a little long winded in some sections and did not always include as much information as I wanted in others, but overall it made a good companion to my research design class.

    Not exactly riveting, but that's to be expected. Was mostly clear and made good use of interesting anecdotes along the way. I appreciated the use of so many real studies as examples because I learned as much about different historical findings as I did the method of research behind them.

    Solid textbook, was able to effectively teach myself the course material for an online class without having to watch the professor’s video lectures.

    For having a dull subject matter, the textbook did a good job of making the material somewhat easy to understand and palatable. The examples were relevant and the text itself was pretty basic.

    For a textbook, this was incredibly well written. Morling does a wonderful job of explaining complex material very clearly and the book is remarkably interesting considering how dense the subject is. Would definitely recommend for classrooms and for anyone interested in conducting psychological research.

    It's really useful to be able to properly read and interrogate scientific studies. Everyone should know how to do this (then maybe people could stop believing that vaccines cause autism).

    This was without a doubt the best textbook I've ever read. Morling thoroughly and clearly describes the many methods involved in psychology, painting the pictures of psychology methods in a way that anyone can understand. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is pursuing a degree in psychology, or just is interested in psychology in general. This was without a doubt the best textbook I've ever read.

    Had to read this for class. It was okay, reader-friendly, but really bland at explaining some concepts. It could be better and could be worse.

    I was surprised at how easy this textbook was to read. It does a pretty good job at making a confusing and complex topic easy to comprehend.
