Sherri L. Jackson's Research Methods and Statistics: A Critical Thinking Approach, ISBN 9781111346553 does a phenomenal job of incorporating two, sometimes difficult subject matters in a manner that alleviates student trepidation of such paramount topics. This combined text clearly maps out the integral relationship between research methods and statistics by showing students practical applications of statistics within the process of data analysis during research. User-friendly narrative writing is the basis for this text combined with the inclusion of higher-order thinking skills. Practical examples and activities are included that are easily relatable to students from all levels. Jackson incorporates keen organization within the pages of Research Methods and Statistics: A Critical Thinking Approach across 15 detailed and information-packed chapters. Chapter 1, 'Thinking Like a Scientist,' deals with various scientific topics such as psychological research, basic and applied research, goals of science, as well as an introduction to research methods within science. Chapter 2, entitled 'Getting Started: Ideas, Resources, and Ethics,' discusses selecting a problem, reviewing literature, ethical standards in research with human subjects, children and animals. 'Defining, Measuring, and Manipulating Variables' comprises chapter 3 and includes such concepts as defining variables, properties and scales of measurement, types of measures, reliability, and validity. Within the pages of chapter 4 entitled 'Descriptive Methods,' Jackson describes such methods as the observational, qualitative, and survey methods. Chapter 5, 'Data Organization and Descriptive Statistics' deals with just that…organizing data and descriptive statistics while Chapter 6, 'Correlational Methods and Statistics' tackles the subjects of conducting correlational research, magnitude, scatterplots, prediction and correlation, correlation coefficients, and regression analysis. 'Probability and Hypothesis Testing' are covered in chapter 7 followed by an 'Introduction to Inferential Statistics' in chapter 8. Chapter 9 details 'The Logic of Experimental Design' covering between-subjects experimental designs as well as correlated-groups designs. 'Inferential Statistics: Two-Group Designs' are discussed in chapter 10 where items such as parametric statistics and nonparametric tests are covered. 'Experimental Designs with More Than Two Levels of an Independent Variable' comprises chapter 11 followed by 'Complex Experimental Designs' in chapter 12. The text concludes with Chapter 13 entitled 'Quasi-Experimental and Single-Case Designs,' chapter 14 detailing 'APA Communication Guidelines, and finally chapter 15 which provides an 'APA Sample Manuscript.'
