The examples of the journal articles with the notationsare very helpful and we use these for discussion in the class quite a bit. I also like the 'reviewingwhat we ve learned' and 'practicing your skills' at the end of the chapter. I much prefer the consumer approach of this text over others on the market." -- Candyce Reynolds, Portland State University ""Understanding Research" is true to its name; it is much more user friendly, it explains WHAT research IS.It does an EXCELLENT job of covering all of the material I currently cover.[The authors](fortunately) force me to provide a balanced, comparative description of both [quantitative and qualitative] research. . . . I find the writing style to be clear, interesting and engaging." -- Carol A. Friesen, Ball State University "
