I don't know why they can't make this book work on ereaders! Nook Study is totally worthless and difficult to use. The navigation is awful. Don't waste your money on the eTextbook.

Practical Research (Leedy & Ormrod) is an exceptionally well-written introduction to research methods. It is written very clearly, provides a series of examples, and highlights good practices for beginning researchers. Doctoral Student 2/15/2014
