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.

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.

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

This is a required book for my Nursing course and it is extremely difficult to understand and very repetitive in content. If you're just looking for a book to help you better understand and it's not required don't buy it.

The quality of the book is good. All the pages are there and the binding is fine it's just really lacking in content and clarity.

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.

This book was not very helpful at all. It is not that hard to read but the topics itself are not particularly interesting and every topic seems to jumble together. Not very useful when trying to obtain a nursing degree. More useful if you are seeking your doctorate in research.

Tedious book. This thing wants a minimum number of words, but I don't have anything else to add. Tedious. If you already know anything about research you'll be bored. If you have to have it for school, by all means, get it, but it is tedious.
