"I am happy to recommend this to my students as it covers jargon without using jargon and explains all those simple things that many academics take for granted. It also gives good examples of how to get the best from your time studying psychology from how to write good essays to the rules of writing lab reports." (Dr Joy Coogan, University of East London). This book provides students with a wide range of research and study skills necessary for achieving a successful classification on a psychology degree course. It replaces the stress and fear experienced when encountering essays, reports, statistics and exams with a sense of confidence, enthusiasm and even fun. Sieglinde McGee presents indispensable instruction, advice and tips on note making and note taking, evaluating academic literature, writing critical essays, preparing for and doing essay and MCQ exams, understanding research methods and issues associated with conducting research, writing and presenting reports and research and also some important computer skills. Examples provided will show how to score well on assignments and exams and also the sort of approach, layout, errors, omissions or answer-style that would achieve a lower grade. Practical exercises and interactive tasks are integrated throughout to clarify key points and give the students a chance to practise on their own. This is a useful resource for students taking modules in study and research skills in psychology and an essential guide for all other students studying on psychology programmes. Dr Sieglinde McGee is an Associate of the School of Psychology at Trinity College, Dublin, where she taught for several years.
