9781305503076: The Basics of Social Research

This thorough revision of Babbie's standard-setting text presents a succinct, straightforward introduction to the field of research methods as practiced by social scientists. Contemporary examples, such as terrorism, Alzheimer's disease, anti-gay prejudice and education, and the legalization of marijuana, introduce students to the "how-tos" and "whys" of social research methods. Updated with new data, expanded coverage of online research and other topics, and new Learning Objectives for each chapter to focus students' attention on important concepts, this edition continues to be authoritative yet student-friendly and engaging as it helps students connect the dots between the world of social research and the real world.

About the Author:

Earl R. Babbie graduated from Harvard University before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and began teaching shortly thereafter. Credited with defining research methods for the social sciences, Dr. Babbie has written several texts, including the bestselling THE PRACTICE OF SOCIAL RESEARCH and THE BASICS OF SOCIAL RESEARCH.

Review:

"[The homework solution] has helped the students understand the terms and concepts. They work the Aplia problems prior to class. I then look at the subject areas most commonly missed, and adjust my class focus accordingly. When I walk into class, the students are already talking about the material, and I am able to maximize our class time to address problem areas."

"I ran a correlational analysis. One class did [the homework solution] and one did not. 48% of the test scores were explained by Aplia. The difference between the class with [the homework solution] and the class without was like night and day."
