Was originally not going to upload these as they aren't as well designed as my other notes, but the content from this unit and these notes have been so integral to future psych units, and I put a lot of time into the structure and format.

These notes are basically an in-depth summary of the entire text book, chapter by chapter, highlighting key terms and concepts:

Understanding Scientific Research
Research Approaches & Data Collection Methods
From Research Ideas to Hypothesis Formation
Ethics in Scientific Research
Measurement Techniques & Sampling Methods
Research Validity
