From the PublisherRonda Priest, University of Southern Indiana; "I find the writing style extremely accessible to junior/senior level college students." "I really like the Stop & Think exercises. They easily transfer to discussion & possible exam questions for class." "A well written compact text that is full of real-life research examples. I would recommended this to a new faculty who is just starting out teaching the research methods course."
Dennis Downey, University of Utah; "I adopted How It's Done because it is well-written and concise. I found it to be written in a very straightforward and accessible style. Students have no problem following it and understanding the ideas presented. In part, that is because I think it is pitched at the right level; that is, it does not get bogged down in side issues or non-fundamentals that will only distract students." "I think the authors have done a good job of illustrating the various research methods through their "Focal Research" sections. They did a great job of choosing research segments." "I like and use the focus research sections extensively. For each chapter, I spend significant time discussing the focal research sections with students." "I would describe it as a concise and well-written presentation of the fundamentals of research methods. I can highly recommend it as a very sold basic text."
Scott Myers, Montana State University; "I was very pleased with the tone and writing style of this text. It did a great job of juggling formality and informality, and I'm sure that students respond positively to this text." "Stop & think- Great! Perfect for class discussions."
John Mitrano, Central Connecticut State University; "I am impressed by the folksy language and tone the authors use throughout the text-very accessible without being condescending." "In general, a well-written, comprehensive methods text that introduces students to the basics of social research and the research process."
