Research Methods in Practice offers a combination of academic weight, coupled clarity and an easy to follow style that will allow students and practitioners to take their research skills to a level otherwise considered unrealistic. If students are looking to purchase one text that will provide sound coverage of research methods coupled with examples that provide clarity of application this is it.
The text is very well organized. Often reading research methods texts can lead to more confusion than the student originally had. This text, by contrast is presented in a clear, logical, tool box approach.(Matthew Cooper)

What do you get when you cross writings from an electrical engineering-health economist (Dahlia Remler) with a psychologist-geographer (Gregg Van Ryzin)? An eclectic array of fundamental ideas on research portrayed and measured across multidisciplinary domains, i.e., Research Methods in Practice. Just about every topic you might consider for developing theory and building research questions, to formulating knowledge and identifying relevant methods is discussed. Accordingly, experimental approaches, data analyses, and research methods are exposed to the reader in a clear, concise fashion.
Research Methods in Practice is the go-to book for that quick start in learning how to do research.(Gary Langford)
This is a well-organized book that deals with a good number of issues. It develops the discussion into an appropriate depth for the students on undergraduate and post graduate programmes without confusion.
