This is my third graduate school, so I can say the context is excellent. I wish I had this book for my first graduate school, as it prepares you for research, helps you to choose methodology and is pretty up to date. However there are a few peculiarities I did not like:
1. Text-to-speech (TTS) option. I have a little bit of a learning disability: I am a very slow reader even in my native language, but ten times worse in English, as it is my second language. However, I am an excellent listener. I choose mostly electronic textbooks, because I can listen and follow text when I need it. Not in this book: for some reason authors has chosen to prohibit TTS.
2. The amount of text you may copy is limited. I had to use copy-past to put the content into one of free on-line text-to-speech modules, however that was enough only for first 2.5 chapters. Now a message comes up: you have reached the publisher''s copy limit set for this title. I''m very disappointed about it.

It''s in okay condition for a used textbook, but I hate reading it for a couple of reasons: the content seems aimed at maybe high schoolers who are embarking on research for the first time, while I am a master''s student. Not the author''s fault my professor assigned such a mismatched book, but I get the impression that this is marketed to college and gradschool professors in spite of it''s simplicity. Also, the one I received has a strong smell. I don''t want to have it out in public because I''m embarrassed by the stench. I don''t do much reading in public these days thanks to covid. Still, I feel like I have to warn my family when I get this book out, in case they smell it.

This is one of the best textbook for people working on their Ph.D. or even EdD. This helps explains terminology and what to look for. Examples are superb and I wish this was a required book for me. HIGHLY recommend it,.

Good starting point
Reviewed in the United States on November 17, 2020
If you haven''t ever thought about writing a research paper, this might be a good place to start. If you are already in the process, you probably need to look more closely at a more technical solution.
