There has been a huge increase in the number of students studying psychology in schools and at degree level. Virtually all degree and A level students are required to write practical reports for their psychology courses. The second edition of this popular text offers expanded advice and updated guidelines to students on how to go about doing this. It is intended to be useful to students at all levels. It provides a basic introduction to designing and writing reports of experimental and other studies in psychology and is thus useful for beginners. At the same time, it covers issues of design and reporting of use to students working on projects in the final year of degree courses. It is like a thesaurus or dictionary - in frequent use as the need arises. The first edition was widely adopted as a core course text.
