All the various books on consumer research, that I have read, differentiate themselves on 2 dimensions:
(a) whether they are detailed and there is ample deep-dive and

Recommends it for: mahasiswa psikologi, mahasiswa statistik, periset
Buku yg sangat berguna (dan diakui oleh dosen sebagai buku yg dapat dimasukkan dalam referensi) dalam mengerjakan tugas kuliah yg berhubungan dengan metodologi, statistik dan riset di bidang ilmu psikologi. Masih gw pake sampai sekarang di pekerjaan. Nih lagi ada di antara tumpukan buku di meja kerja gw.

A woman on Craigslist gave a way a huge box of books that belonged to her child. I like books so I went to pick them up. Lo and Behold, all books on abnormal psychology, Human behavior, and writings from folks about their patients. A box full of shit perfect for Ella!
