Probably better for graduate studentsReviewed in the United States on 27 September 2012
I used this text in an undergraduate research course in the behavioral sciences department. Most of the students were juniors. The students complained that the reading level was above their heads and that it wasn't very helpful. Personally, I thought it was well-written and insightful. I would recommend making sure that your students have enough of a research background and high enough of a reading level before selecting this book for a course.

An excellent book for conducting researchReviewed in the United States on 16 June 2014
The book was very informative, thus describing everything from the process of reseach, designs and methods to employ , when conducting research. Its very helpful, when it comes to collecting data, data analysis and so on. Additionally,its useful in describing how to construct a research question and that of a hypotheses, and strategy. Overall, the book is excellent for researchers, wanting to learn how to conduct research at a graduate and scholarly level. The book is highly recommended for graduate students and those who are conducting post graduate work in research, methods, ethics and the statistical aspect of research. Everything you want to know about research can be found in the book : Critical thinking about research: Psychology and related fields. The book was particularly helpful in my gaining a precise understanding in approaching research and the critical thinking which is a vital part of research as well as other aspects of diversity that is a important role that intergrates into research, in other words the ins and outs of research, a must read book.

Very good bookReviewed in the United States on 22 August 2006
This book is good for any student who is willing to learn the rudiments of critiquing an article. Meltzoff summarizes the important features in a clear way with numerous examples. The only problem is the articles are too short - I wish they were longer in order to give a much more comprehensive critique (but this is not a major problem)!

Required for classReviewed in the United States on 24 August 2013
Most of these text books are all similar, they're not bad but they're just an outline for a class. I wouldn't buy this to read as a hobby, but it's not a horrible textbook.
