It was a great refresher of my undergraduate years and helped me understand why you would choose x method for x research question. However, it does not contain any statistical information and does not explain what statistical method you would use and why - so I had to buy another book for that which worked out pretty pricey!
In summation, this book literally talks you through the stages of research from beginning to end, but wont help with data analysis and interpretation from a statistical point of view.
