4.0 out of 5 stars Direct, practical guide to research in the social sciences., 17 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: How to Research (Paperback)
I used this book while completing university studies and found it's direct writing style and practical approach to doing research in the social sciences of great benefit. Of particular value was the way the text was broken up with the use of Boxes, Exercises and Hints and Tips, offering succint advice relating to aspects of the research process, and providing opportunities to test knowledge gained of researching. The book covers all facets and steps involved in conducting a research project, from devising a research topic to publishing results of research. The publication date of the book (1996) does mean that some of the information in it is slightly outdated, the Internet for example is only referred to in passing as a new, developing database, but it would still remain highly useful to anyone who is just starting to undertake research at a university level, or to further develop existing skills and knowledge of researching. Relatively light on theory and very strong on the practicalities of research, highly recommended.
