Review:

'Research Methods in Education contains much theoretical material, but this is supported by many practical examples and down-to-earth guidance. It is very clearly written, and demystifies the theory aspects of education research. The 200 pages of supplementary material are particularly practically focused, and are a substantial improvement on the previous edition of the book - if you already have a copy of the 5th edition, I would suggest you consider upgrading ... If you plan to undertake serious educational research in your discipline, Research Methods in Education is an invaluable addition to your bookshelf.' - Bioscience Education, The Higher Education Academy

'This great book (in both senses) now reaches its sixth edition - and that marks real progress ... The strength of the book remains its highly detailed account of many research methods. This new edition sees that account taken yet further - with new contents of w-based research as well as on sampling, interviews and surveys, and extra on various other kinds of approach.' - British Journal of Educational Technology

'I believe 'Research Methods in Education' is a very impressive volume. Detailed, instructive,rigorous, engaging; graduate students as well as their professors will surely learn a lot from it' - International Journal of Research and Method in Education
