Summary

Kantowitz, Roediger, and Elmes, all prominent researchers, take an example-based approach to the fundamentals of research methodology. Their text is organized by topic - such as research in human factors, learning, thinking, and problem solving - a unique feature that helps students connect the concepts of sound methodology with their practical applications. Because the authors employ dozens of carefully-selected, real-world examples, students can see for themselves the issues and problems that can occur in conducting research. More importantly, they can develop a sense of how to anticipate and adjust for problems in their own research.
