1st half is fine, 2nd Half is worst
on 15 July 2013
The book is just fine because it only covers one area of research method in greater detail and just explain (for the sake of explanation) other methods, for example, it has discussed a case study and qualitative analysis example in greater detail. My question is what about other methods like quantitative analysis? Or students who want to focus conduct research based on some other researcher's "Conceptual Framework" . This the BIGEEST FLAW of this book.
The second half of the book, from Discussion and Findings, also discusses one approach, such as Focus Grpup. Now at that point I am totally LOST. Previously the authors talked about CASE STUDY , where focus group never discussed. All of a sudden, I start feeling lost.
If you wanted to focus of Case study and Focus Group then this book will help you completely. Otherwise, you will get some good phrases to use and a road map. So I'll say this book is not a EXACTLY A STEP BY STEP GUIDE. It's just fine. See if you can get any other book
