Summary

The Practical Researcher by Dana S. Dunn translates the theory side of research methods into practice. Utilizing a hands on approach, Professor Dunn leads students through the process of developing and conducting research. In addition to learning about research theory, students learn the importance of reading, writing, and critiquing journal articles. As they work through the text, students are led to think beyond the given information and become critical consumers of the literature.

The Practical Researcher, is both engaging and accessible. It includes step by step tables and figures in most chapters so that students can model examples for their own work. The importance of learning to write and to utilize the APA style of writing is emphasized throughout.
