Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book for anyone interested in the study of human or non-human behavior in lab or field settings. The authors pack nothing but the vital basics in this guide. They cover topics such as research design (sample sizes) and data analysis (parametric vs. nonparametric stats). Reading this book is a great use of your time if you're considering research on animal behavior.

This book is a perfect introduction to the field of behavioral data collection. I purchased this book for my first behavioral study of captive primates and it was extremely helpful. If you have never conducted research in this area, this book is a must have.

Excellent book, but too expensive. April 25 2009
By Marie G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like this book, its well written and concise, but it very short and too expensive for what you get. I have no other books like this so I don't know if it worth a buy anyway.
Really clear and easy to read Dec 12 2013
By Mathieu Léger-Dalcourt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really clear and easy to read. Good for beginners, but too superficial to be of real help with designing your research if taken alone. Really good introduction though.

As far as textbooks go this one was very enjoyable. (Meaning it didn't feel like walking through mud)
It is very easy to understand and full of useful information.
