This is an excellent resource on research methodology and very accessible for the students I teach.
This is an excellent book BUT this edition is HIDEOUS.
It is a weird shape and won't fit well on our library shelves. One of my students mentioned she keeps her's on the floor.
The text is at times pink on pink or blue on blue and the contrast is terrible - that's an accessibility issue.
On a more subjective note, the fonts and the neons look like someone was trying to be cool and trendy and it smacks of 'hello fellow kids'. Fire the graphic designer.
Standard classic text - appropriate for any level of study.
Excellent overview of concepts and terminology.
A colourful and easy to use text book which I think the students will enjoy.
Fantastic research book. Very easy to read, well laid out and informative
An extremely detailed yet accessible introduction to conducting and evaluating research in a variety of subjects. This is a really helpful resource for students and is presented in an engaging manner.
I am no longer the course leader for this module but this is the best book on the market It is so well structured and very informative in an easier to read format than many other books on this topic
Great overview of research in a user friendly presentation, love the bright colours and unusual landscape layout.
Love this book. Very useful to dip in an out of and is bright and engaging. Clearly defined chapters with a good range of practical activities and exercises to reinforce learning. Student friendly and the bonus of online resources.
I will order this book for our library. The book caught my attention in order to be use by master students of music, which are essentially all beginning researchers; some of them have quite a bit of trouble connecting a research project to their artistic and professional practice in music or larger cultural practice, which is most essential for how we envision research in our master programme.
Colleagues pick this book up from my desk as the pink lettering makes it stand out. Easy to read and dip into.
This is a well written comprehensive text with excellent examples. It is easy for beginner researchers to understand.
This is a very easy book for students to follow
The fifth edition is horrible. The layout and colors used for the font are nearly unreadable.
I was very happy with the previous edition. I refuse to use this one.
