Book Description

12 Sep 1997 0863777899 978-0863777899
This book has four aspects which together make it unique. Firstly, it takes the reader through all the stages of research from design, through conduct, analysis and interpretation to reporting the research, including advice on presenting a paper or a poster at a conference. Secondly, it describes a wide range of methods and although it concentrates on quantitative approaches, it also briefly describes a number of qualitative methods. Thirdly, the coverage of statistical techniques is thorough but the way in which they are described is designed for the reader who will do the analysis by computer. Accordingly, the techniques are presented in as non-mathematical a way as possible, with the emphasis on choosing the appropriate test and interpreting and reporting the results. Nonetheless, formulae, worked examples and more complex material are contained in extensive appendixes. Fourthly, the importance of statistical power and effect size is stressed, with guidelines on how to choose an appropriate sample size for most of the statistical tests covered in the book. These include a wide range of both parametric and non-parametric tests. The book concentrates on univariate statistics - such as t-tests, ANOVA and Multiple Regression - and bi-variate statistics - such as correlation - but also includes a chapter which describes multivariate techniques to give the reader an idea of when they can be used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best research methods book I've ever read 3 Dec 2002
I feel that is the best research methods book that any person with an interest in carrying out quantitative research could own. It is of value to both undergraduate and post graduate alike, taking the student/researcher from the very basic to the most complex research methods. For example the novice is shown the basics in simple easy to read terms, whilst the more experienced researcher is shown how to perform statistical measures that are not sensitive to sample size error when David shows how to carry out effect size measurements. He also shows how to perform a meta analysis and much more. As one of David's ex students I feel that he has produced a very good research methods text. I say this after comparing his book with a wide range of similar text books and find him to deliver a high quality, user friendly approach to research.

By A Customer
I would highly recomend ths book for anyone on a degree course in psychology (or a related subject). The book is easy to understand while not been too simplistic. I find it increadably easy to find the sections i need dispite the thickness of the book as the index is amazing. This is my favourate research methods book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for sample size calculations 26 Mar 2013
By Amy Delgado - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a researcher, who frequently uses methods from the social and psychological sciences in my work, although my background is in a different field. I purchased this book on the recommendation of a sociologist I work with, specifically for the section on sample size calculations (Chapter 11 and Appendix II). This is the most complete and helpful book I have found for complex sampling considerations. The rest of the book is well written and includes discussion of many common statistical tests, although it seems to favor more basic statistical tests which are not commonly used in my field. It also includes useful discussion scattered throughout the text on how to prepare a manuscript for publication (from intro through to results and discussion), which could be helpful for beginners. Overall, a nice reference to have on my shelf.
