Customer Reviews

I purchased this book for my research class and was amazed how easy the material was presented.
Rosalynda Del Valle
It's a good basic reference book that provides numerous research samples and critiques to aid the student in their own critique.
April D. Tolson
It is not that hard to read but the topics itself are not particularly interesting and every topic seems to jumble together.

I actually rented this book for a BSN course, and have to say that now I wish I would have purchased instead of renting. I plan to move forward in pursuit of a MSN degree and I feel this book would continue to be a resource. It's a good basic reference book that provides numerous research samples and critiques to aid the student in their own critique.

I love nursing, I hate research. This book did a good job of explaining the statistics in a useful, if still boring way.

Very hard to read unless you have the mind of a researcher. Poor examples that don't really explain the various definitions throughout. Can be redundant at times, which can be good, but I found it annoying.

Required text for my nursing class. I felt it gave good examples for a difficult subject and helped me to learn the concepts.

Written clearly - index good - examples are helpful. It's a useful textbook on a topic that is not fun for most people, but a necessity for a college education.

The book was basically new as far as I could tell. I don't recall what condition it was specifically noted as, but for me it was mint condition. The topics covered in the text were very thorough and detailed and helped with making complex items very understandable. Shipment was very quick.
