Editorial Reviews

From reviews of the book:   “Entire text is very accessible – through both language and visual aids; easy to understand examples for nearly every situation described in the text; beginning researchers will appreciate the attentiveness to context, while more experienced students will find a comprehensive text that expertly connects the many intertwining elements of the research process.” — Lauren Saenz, Boston College   “[T]he numerous summary tables … organize and consolidate the material in one convenient place …. end-of-chapter summaries are especially well done… presented in a topical format [and help] students to review the material… end-of-chapter tasks [are] … especially helpful to students who don’t quite know how to get started on the task.”  — Dwight R. Gard, Texas Tech University   “[T]he authors’ writing style … is instructive, engaging and at a level that is appropriate for any graduate student seeking a general understanding of research methods. The objectives and summary tables at the beginning of the chapter focus the students’ attention on the important ideas … numbered steps and examples provide clarification, especially where procedures are involved. The tasks and examples presented at the end of the chapter add relevancy to the chapter topics.” — Jann W. MacInnes, University of Florida
