This was my first time ordering a book online, and I must say it's been rewarding. The book was delivered five days before I expected it and it was in perfect shape. My bookstore couldn't have given me a better book. The authors are well recognized and though I have yet to read the book, I am expecting great enjoyment in reading it. Thank you Amazon for helping me save money at such little "cost"!

HASH(0xa55986a8) out of 5 stars A Good Introduction (7th Edition) May 29 2012
By T. A. Daniel - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Rosnow & Rosenthal's BEGINNING BEHAVIORAL RESEARCH (7th Edition) is quite good. This book is aimed at undergraduate college students majoring in a behaviorally-based science (such as psychology). For a methods class, this textbook might fall a little short of the depth that most professors are looking for. While this book does a good job of explaining the absolute basics (e.g., understanding what a testable hypothesis is), it doesn't quite go far enough; the book ends with "The Analysis of Frequency Tables." This textbook seems suited for classes that try to integrate intro statistics and methods into one course.

Otherwise, the book is very readable and informative. The ending of each chapter includes nice summaries, multiple choice review questions, and discussion questions. This is esoteric material, but the authors take their time to flesh out these conceptual ideas.

If you are looking for a textbook for a Stats/Research Methods course, this might be a good book to use for the first semester. If you are looking for a purely Methods-based course, Introduction to Behavioral Research Methods (6th Edition) might be a little better suited.

HASH(0xa55986fc) out of 5 stars Great information, but horribly dry writing Sept. 14 2014

OMG I can't believe I still have to read 9 more chapters of this book this semester. Great information, but horribly dry writing, and really tedious format; paragraphs ramble on for the better part of a page, mind you in what I am guessing is 8pt font...REALLY hard to read...

Maybe I'll just skim it and peruse the chapter summaries for the rest of the semester.

It's a college book that you will have to use. I prefer paper in hand instead of words online when it comes to reading the required reading for the class.
