Review:

"In general, I view this as a very good text for junior and senior level students and it is likely that I would seriously consider the text for future use. This text is well written and easy to follow. It provides relevant and up to date references and most importantly, provides a discussion of statistics in the relevant chapters. I give this text an “A”."
(Karen Holmes)

"I would be very likely to adopt this text for my HD FS 312W course. I would want to see the final produce and ancillary materials, but from what I have seen of the manuscript I think that this text would work very well with my students. I am most impressed with the style of writing (which I believe my students will respond to) as well as the up to date references and examples." (James Kuterbach)

I enjoyed reading the chapters and believe my students would actually enjoy reading this textbook. I would seriously consider adopting this text for my Research Methods course. I would recommend this text to my colleagues. (Sandra Waters)

"If my methods class met once a week I would be very likely to adopt this textbook. I think the examples in the beginning of each chapter will draw the students’ attention and will help them connect the concepts to actual research. This textbook is unique in that sense. Also, I think the book is clearly written and does a good job of covering the major research concepts." (Daryl Wout)

"I would be very likely to seriously consider adopting this text for my courses. The readability tone is excellent for undergraduate students studying research methods. The only thing keeping me from indicating that I am “extremely likely” is not having seen the Instructor Resources. If the Instructor Resources are of the same quality of the manuscript I reviewed, I would seriously consider adopting this text." (John Wallace)
