One of the greatest strengths of this text is the consistent integration of research methods and statistics so that students can better understand how the research process requires the combination of these elements. The end goal is to spark students' interest in conducting research and to increase their ability to critically analyze it.

"This is one of the few books of this type that writes FOR the students and not for the professor. Beginning students can get this material, and advanced students will find it a great review source." -- Cheryl L. Ramey
"I have reviewed many texts over the years and this one does the best job at integrating methods and statistics within each chapter." -- Jeffrey W. Grimm, PhD
"The explanations of statistical approaches are clear and the applicability of these approaches is well articulated. This text addresses the basic question of `but why do it this way' extraordinarily well." -- Bonita G. Cade, PhD, JD
"I feel like I'm constantly telling my students that learning research methods and statistics is not a linear process; it requires much revisiting of earlier topics. The authors of this text seem to echo that sentiment in their explanation of the scientific method." -- Amanda C. Gingerich
"It does appear to provide a good balance of introducing the student to research methods without scaring them away from experimental design." -- Aurora Torres
"I like that this text seems to cover the most essential elements of conducting research in a manner that supports the time-line of a student project." -- Laura Spiller
"I appreciated the unique way the authors incorporated methods and theory of research with the practical aspects of conducting research, as often highlighted in the Ethical Tips." -- Jennifer Devenport
"The biggest strengths were readability, use of examples and explanation of reasoning behind design decisions. There is also some advantage to organize by type of design versus type of statistical method." -- Mary Jo Carnot
"This book nicely introduces research and sets the foundation for the later concepts to come." -- Chrislyn E. Randell
"I think the text is very comprehensive......the authors cover not only the key research topics, but also include a thorough presentation of data analysis and interpretation. I also like the way the authors are addressing the topic of writing research papers in APA format and style. They have embedded "Writing in APA Format" examples and application exercises within the chapters. Students gain valuable experience writing results and discussion sections for studies using the different research designs covered in these chapters." -- Patricia C. Heindel, PhD
"I think the text is a solid presentation of the material." -- Darryl Mayeaux
