I applaud the authors in their continuing efforts to improve an already excellent product. The text is well organized with numerous examples that assist students to be competent researchers and research consumers. It is a one of the few texts that provides information on both qualitative and quantitative research in a clear and engaging manner. I highly recommend the book!

This text provides an important framework for research faculty and students. All of the essential elements for preparing students to become informed consumers of contemporary research are provided in this one work, and the connection to practice is evident every step of the way.
