This book is not just a guide to the conduct of psychological research, but also an effective support system for the particular problems, concerns and fears encountered by students in their research lives. The book is divided into parts, each dealing with a major element of the research process and combining to produce a step-by-step guide for the student embarking on a major piece of undergraduate research.show more
