Review:

"The text is a must for any [social research] course and should be integrated in all curriculums, both undergraduate and graduate...It will make teaching easier and improve student outcomes. Thank you, Dr. Holosko!"

"Primer for Critiquing Social Research "is an excellent book for social science students to learn about social research and grasp the skills for writing a critique."

"Dr. Holosko's primer has a wonderfully approachable style and a clear focus on how to get research done...I absolutely loved the traffic lights, warning signs, advice to students, and the prompts to proceed. I believe students will really feel welcomed by the creativity in this presentation style; I know I did."

"Primer for Critiquing Social Research "is a straightforward, concise, practical text which is sorely needed in the field."

"I have had an opportunity to incorporate your Primer for Critiquing Social Research in two undergraduate research courses. On both occasions the students reported finding it very helpful and were able to undertake effectively a critique. As an instructor, I found that it both aided students in understanding discrete aspects of research methodology as well as helping them grasp the overall thrust of the research and its credibility."
