I am still using this book in my graduate school as I write my thesis and i think that this book is the mos suitable source i need in my work procees. Trochim and Donnelly do a good job of making the process of research and writing academic research papers clearer.

A good introduction to qualitative and quantitative research methods. Fairly easy to understand, some humor (which is important in this subject matter), and a good layout. This book will help in my future Master's degree program for sure.

Not the best book but good for reference when looking into both quantitive and qualitive research methods more in depthly. I think there are better ones out there though.
