"Understanding Research: a Consumer's Guide" is the first text that places its focus squarely on the needs of the research consumer. This text helps develop in readers the skills, knowledge and strategies needed to read and interpret research reports and to evaluate the "quality" of such reports. Praise for "Understanding Research: " "The author[s] ha[ve] developed powerful and elegant ways to present and organize key research concepts in a way that I believe would allow complex ideas to be readily accessible to the beginning student of research. I think it is a remarkable presentation; the author[s] address concepts that I have found from experience to be difficult for new research students to grasp, and present them clearly, coherently and comprehensibly."Nancy MansbergerWestern Michigan University "This manuscript uses example articles in a more integrated way, with articles serving as instructional illustrations and the basis for student exercises throughout the book."Pamela F. MurphyVirginia Tech "The figures that guide the reader to take responsibility for critiquing published studies are a plus. I don't see any weaknesses. In fact, I'm already wishing I could try out this text next fall." Pamela H. BakerGeorge Mason University
