9780125466608: Training: Research and Practice

This is the most comprehensive textbook discussing the principles that influence the development of training. It serves any student of training, practitioners, and consultants. All aspects of educational and industrial training are currently at the center of national debate. Training serves as the first single-authored text in this area at the non-introductory level. Of special interest is the novel coverage of: expertise, skill acquisition and transfer; techniques for analysing tasks and skills; systems approaches to training development; training methods; theories of training design; simulation and the role of computers in training; and trainee characteristics and learning strategies.

Review:

"The comprehensiveness of this book is especially impressive because it is the work of a single author...The book informs and challenges one in so many areas... A book of 561 pages and maybe 2000 references, giving an authoritative account of a major field of activity for occupational psychologists must be an important resource. It will help any reader clarify his or her understanding of half-grasped principles, introduce new areas and suggest new lines for future research." --THE OCCUPATIONAL PSYCHOLOGIST "The 500+ pages of the book comprehensively cover the major areas dealing with the training function...The book provides the thoughtful reader with a level and breadth of information that enables wise decision making. In fact, the book represents an excellent text to be used in advanced graduate courses in an industrial/organizational psychology program... The reader of Training will finish the book with a great deal of information about the training function... The readers who invest the time needed to come to grips with this book will find that they earn a good return on their investment." --PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY
