Larry Christensen's "Experimental Methodology," Tenth Edition, is a reader-friendly introduction to the basic principles of experimental psychological research. The text provides instruction in experimental research as well as non-experimental approaches such as ex-post facto research, correlational research, and survey research. Also included are qualitative research approaches such as ethnography and phenomenology. Features that facilitate student learning include chapter-opening vignettes that show the relevance of psychological research, study questions within each chapter, and end-of-chapter challenge questions. A short practice exam also is included at the end of each chapter to help students assess their comprehension. A student website includes additional practice exam questions, as well as web links and other study tools.
