I used this book the other way around, to analyze research essays on their methodological assumptions, choices and validity. Although this results in a less systematic use of the book, it proved to be quite useful and comprehensive in my quest to these answers. I will probably be using it in the near future again to write more dissertations and papers which, with this recent experience in mind, won't be a problem!

الكتاب الي بين ايديني الطبعة التاسعة...كتاب مفيد جداً وواضح...لكن يعيبه جفاف اسلوبه

أفضل مافيه ...هو البوكسز الي تعرض

Focus on student research

عشان فيها ربط أكثر بين الثيوري والتطبيق العملي...وهذا أكثر شي ممكن يجذبني لأي كتاب علمي او مرجع

أرجع واقول مثل باقي المراجع...أنا ماقريت الكتاب كامل...أنا قريت الأجزاء التي تهمني فقط :)لأغراض بحثية خاصة

ودمتم سالمين
I'm not exactly a research enthusiast, especially when it comes to business research, but I have to say that this book puts it to you in a straightforward and clear manner. It's easy to understand and it explains the concepts and the concerns behind the individual research methodologies in clear details.

Good for my MBA, but perhaps lacking in the applied examples.

A must-have for dissertation writing

This is an excellent book all students writing a dissertation report must have. It captures dissertation writing from A-Z in a clear and very accessible way, with great examples to support the theories.

I like it.
