5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Research Handbook May 28, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have to say this book is excellent. I have bought a few books to upskill me on statistics and research methods but this book is the best book (of any type) I have read in a long time. It explains everything really well. I am doing a PhD is genetics and so require heaps of stats etc and it's great. Would recommend to anyone wanting a good research reference for statistics and clinical research methods.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We had looked at previous versions and were glad to see that it had been updated. It has been an excellent source for the medical students, residents, fellows and some research nurses at our facility. We have been having a series of seminars on how to get research projects started.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tons of Information February 14, 2010
Format:Hardcover
This text has tons of information and is great to read before lecture because it is more thorough and has lots of examples. It is lengthy and a slow read, but worth the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Several changes from previous edition July 8, 2011
By OT
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had the previous edition of this book during my Master's program and recently purchased this edition for my doctoral training. There is alot more information covered in this book and although it takes me more than one attempt to understand some of the concepts, the material can be understood. This book will be very helpful to have during the rest of my program I'm sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book August 30, 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is one of the few books that really goes into the foundations of clinical research. I use it very regularly as a basic reference for my undergrad statistics class. The book starts with the basis of research which is logic and thinking. I have seen very few research books that start with this type of an introduction to research and just that in my opinion makes it a great book to start, especially if somebody is being introduced to the subject for the first time.
