Format: Paperback
Creswell has written several books on research design in the past, and they are usually very comprehensive and all-encompassing. This one, however, takes the cake. It is written in a more conversational (and therefore more readable) style than most of his texts, and provides just enough information to provide the first-time researcher with the tools he or she needs to understand the process of developing and implementing a research design strategy. The book provides a great deal of useful information about why the mixed methods approach can potentially improve the validity of a research study.

This is an essential read for any student (at any level: undergrad, postgrad or doctoral) entering the challenging field of research for the first time. Thanks, Dr. Creswell - this is literally just what the doctor ordered.

I understood how to approach writing my dissertation. This book cleared up many questions especially with their examples. I recommend it to all doctoral students who are just beginning to write the research project.
