Reference & Research Book News
"Freeman and Stone describe study skills for psychology students in Britain based around the themes of organization, communication, and reflection- needing to be organized, reflection on what was learned, and being receptive to the communication of ideas. They present an overview of the psychology degree, ways to manage relationships, time, and personal issues; explanations of research and the scientific method; how to be prepared in classroom and other learning situations and assessments; how to use resources; projects and dissertations; and careers. References are incorporated within the text."
