very easy to understand  March 20, 2011

This textbook makes understanding all the jargon and concepts more palatable and user-friendly. It's a good basic reference book that provides numerous research samples and critiques to aid the student in their own critique.
I recommend if you're in a nursing research class, and need to buy this book, do so. It was of great help to me.
