very helpful for people who are writing their thesis or dissertations
The way of choosing your topic for your search were shown clearly in this book.More over I learned how formulating my research to achieve my aim, how to use/collect different kind of data (Primary data, Secondary data and Tertiary data).
Designing questionnaire, running and resulting your search by that. The professional ways and behavior in interview.
How to analysis the data which you accumulate.
And finally the way of make an acceptable presentation of our project which start with the aim of our
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.
Clear step-by-step explanations of how to do research. Especially good for novice researchers.
