Jackson (psychology, Jacksonville U.) wants undergraduates using her text to think like a scientist. She describes the theoretical and practical aspects of critical thinking and the scientific methods and how to use these abstract ideas to get started with ideas and resources. She covers ethics, defining, measuring and manipulating variables, choosing descriptive methods, organizing data, correctly applying correlational and statistical methods, testing hypotheses and inferential statistics, developing a logic of experiment design, using inferential statistics in two-group designs, using complex experimental designs and nonparametric procedures, and applying the APA communication guidelines. She includes exercises with answers and a sample APA-style paper. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
