A PhD candidate must haveReviewed in the United States on 7 September 2011
Cozby writes in clear language about all the nuances and details a doctoral student must know. The book also points out numerous behavioral details that we tend to overlook because they seem obvious. The book speaks of bias in research that is more accidental than obvious. No two people are alike, and so no two researchers perceptions are alike either. The book does an excellent job of examining potential flaws in thinking and researching, and provides methods to avoid these problems. The entire discussion is aided by the fact that Cozby does not talk down to you, nor is the discussion boring. I would even go so far as to say that students need this book earlier to help develop critical thinking skills, because this book really helps in that area. If you are taking statistics and never seem to understand what all the terminology means, this book helps you understand. If you've already taken statistics, you will still benefit from that part of the discussion. All around, this is a researchers best friend. This book mentions another book by Trochim and Donnelly, which is a great complement to this one. Buy both - you'll never regret it.

A really great textbook on the subject of research methodsReviewed in the United States on 28 December 2015
A really great textbook on the subject of research methods. I went to two different schools for my undergrad and masters and encountered this book in two different research methods classes. Overall, it is a pretty good authority on the subject.
