Review:

"Miller’s Developmental Research Methods text is unmatched in its blend of sophisticated, complete, and coherent coverage of matters of developmental design and methods, presented in a way that is accessible to undergraduate and beginning graduate students. As with the previous editions, Miller effectively leads the reader through the 'forest' of issues to be addressed when studying the complexity of development, without losing sight of the exciting and interesting aspects of the endeavor. 'Refreshed' to include several new methodological advancements in developmental psychology, I welcome this new edition of an excellent book." (Catherine A. Haden, Ph.D. 20061023)

"One of the challenges of teaching a research course in developmental psychology is introducing students in rigorous ways to research methods in general, and developmental methods in particular. Miller’s 3rd edition of Developmental Research Methods offers within one book up-to-date coverage that spans both of these needs. The latest edition includes a clear and readable discussion of qualitative methods and applied research, as well as a lucid discussion of writing like a developmental psychologist. Miller provides students with a well-stocked tool kit to help prepare them to ask important questions and find intriguing answers to central questions in the field." (Nancy Budwig 20061023)

"I have used Miller's textbook, Developmental Research Methods, with undergraduates in a developmental research course and with undergraduate and graduate students conducting research in my lab. Students find Developmental Research Methods readable and relevant. As a professor, I am reassured that students are getting a comprehensive treatment of the topic. For instance, the design chapter is extremely detailed, with information on specific developmental designs that can't always be found in a text on general psychological methods. The book is written in a clear and engaging style, with up-to-date research citations, and fun suggestions at the end of each chapter for applying students' knowledge. I found the observational methods section in Chapter 4 to be a wonderful jumping-off point for students to create their own observational coding schemes." (Elaine Reese, Ph.D. 20061023)
