The Thirteenth Edition of Babbie’s THE PRACTICE OF SOCIAL RESEARCH gives students the tools they need to apply research concepts practically, as both researchers and consumers. Known as the gold standard for research methods, the book offers a comprehensive, straightforward introduction to the field of research as practiced by social scientists. Babbie emphasizes the research process by showing students how to design and construct projects, introducing the various observation modes in use today, and answering questions about research methods--such as how to conduct online surveys and analyze both qualitative and quantitative data.

This is one of my favorite textbooks. It's very well organized and explains concepts very well. But the two main reasons why I like it are that it uses very good examples and its funny. Check out the glossary in particular if you want a cheesy giggle. Volledige review lezen
