    This book is a great introduction to ualitative and uantitative research methods It's easy to read and understand It focuses on the overall parts of research and a research paper and the differences between ualitative and uantitative approaches It takes the reader through the fundamentals of selecting your research reviewing the literature using theory and writing strategies and then goes into details in designing and writing your research It addresses the introduction purpose statement and research uestion which are critical to research design and then reviews ualitative ualitative and mixed methods designs The only thing the book is missing is detail about how to actually do the ualitative and uantitative procedures A beginner in statistical methods and ualitative coding will need to look elsewhere Overall this book is good for beginning researchers

    Creswell John Research Design ualitative uantitative and Mixed Methods Approaches Los Angeles SAGE Publications Ltd 2009 Research Design as an introduction to dissertation planning is a rather difficult and technical read In that way it is probably uite appropriate since a dissertation is a massive undertaking and deserves to be introduced in all its complexity The introduction of the philosophies behind the different methods is a little like jumping into the deep end of the pool Fortunately the explanations in the book tend to enhance the reader's understanding of these philosophical bases for research In that way one gathers that there is no one way to study for a particular philosophical leaning Instead the approach is guided by the uestion being answered by the purpose statedThe primary value of Research Design is as a reference tool Like many such tools it is only useful once a familiarity with it has been established So though reading Research Design was tedious and fraught with much the average researcher will never use in order to discover what is useful the survey is necessary I am hoping that as I research for my dissertation I will find returning to it to be a helpful practice I suspect however that its usefulness may be in merely introducing an idea and then guiding me to further resources to understand that idea better

    Grrrr Books like this are about as exciting as reading through an obscure instruction manual for a put it together yourself kiddie play place I get what the author is trying to accomplish It is just agonizing to read cover to cover like a novel Books like this should be probably referenced continually instead of read straight through Context and application are the only way something like this will be helpfulThat being said let me also suggest never to buy ebooks from XPLANA they suck big time Buy a hard copy They won't let you put the ebook on any ereader devices like a kindle and you have to use their special software which means you are limited to reading the entire text books on a computer Which if anyone who has tried knows hours of reading on an LCD monitor will make you want carve out your eyes with a dull pencil Do yourself a favor and buy the hard copy You will be glad you did I regret buying the ebook because now I will likely never use it as a reference just because XPLANA has done a thorough job of making it not user friendly Curse you XPLANA

    This book is a must have for budding scholars who need to know the format of a uality research proposal I'm at the end of my program so there are many lessons that are presented in this book that are review for me I wish I had this book when I began my program because it clears up many of my initial uestions For example there is a section that clarifies the Research Problem versus the Research uestions a line that I had a hard time differentiating when I started this doctoral journey Not only will I be using this in this class but I will pull it out for proposal and dissertation and likely recommend it to my future students

    An excellent resource on the research process stepping through the entire seuence step by step including selection an approach literature review application of theory strategies for writing and ethical considerations The entire research process is covered with numbers examples and tables to provide guidelines and insights Under the actual chapters on research design the authors cover the specific contents of the research report introduction purpose statement research uestions and hypotheses as well as specific guidance on the design of all three approaches ualitative uantitative and mixed method approaches An exceptional resource in the design and implementation of a research project

    A very good reference for researchers

    This is an incredibly useful and thorough guide for graduate students or early career scholars designing their first research projects or developing projects using methods that are new to them The fifth edition includes readable descriptions and definitions for approaches to research methods for data collection and data analysis and guidance for writing the design and results of a project I especially appreciated the visual elements of this edition that show the correlation between different aspects of a project and how different approaches relate to one anotherThis guide is a strong starting point for anyone starting ualitative research for the first or second third fourth time

    Worst Book Ever Seriously If this wasn't a reuired textbook I'd never waste my time on it So if you have any control over whether or not you read this book STAY AWAY I think the writer is one of those people that just likes to hear himself talk Unfortunately he's managed to convince people like publishers editors and academics that if he uses a bunch of big words in order to state simplistic ideas that it somehow makes the stuff coming out of his mouth actually mean something I hate books that are written in the most dry way possible There is nothing that says because you have a serious topic you have to present it as being as exciting as a hysterectomy
