5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding clarity and comprehensiveness May 9, 2000
Format:Hardcover
This book can hardly be recommended enough to both beginning and advanced researchers. It provides an extraordinary breadth and depth of information about research methodology, implementation and statistical analysis. It is written in a clear straightforward style that makes arcane topics understanble without oversimplification. Congratulations to the authors on a difficult job well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars User-friendly and well-organized June 28, 2005
Format:Hardcover
This is a book that I have used often through my graduate career. It served as a great textbook for a course I was taking and as supplementary material for other other courses on Statistics, Design and Research Methods.

Well-organized and easy-to-read, it has become my first line-of-defense for all things related to research design. It covers the material in adequate detail so you have a good jumping off point in case you need to grab your SAS manual or your Stats text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, and clearly written November 5, 2006
Format:Hardcover
Although I have used this text as a reference (vs. reading it all the way through, or for a class) I have found myself returning to it often. In fact, I purchased it only because I had started to wear out the copy I had borrowed from a friend...and she was missing it because she used it frequently, too. The best aspect of this text is the way the authors use examples relevant to clinical research for nearly every statistical decision. No more extrapolating from educational research, medical research...I don't usually have that much imagination! Good book.
