Educational Research: An Introduction, Eighth Edition, is the most comprehensive and widely respected text for scholars and for the preparation of graduate-level students who need to understand educational research in depth and conduct original research for a dissertation or thesis. A comprehensive introduction to the major research methods and types of data analysis used today, this text provides in-depth coverage of all facets of research, from the epistemology of quantitative and qualitative scientific inquiry to the design, data collection, analysis, and reporting of a completed study.

This book is a terrific introductory resource for any student of education. It explains in clear and easy-to-understand terms the mechanics and process of educational research. Difficult concepts are within the reach of any college student thanks to Gall, Gall, and Borg's writing.

However, there are a few problems with their text. Some of their statistics explanations are incorrect, and they even go so far as to explicitly recommend using ANCOVA in inappropriate situations. They also do not explain reliability and validity with enough detail to avoid common misconceptions in the field.

As a student, I'm glad that this text is so accessible, but I'm even more thankful that I have the statistics background to notice the errors in the text. Most of my classmates, though, aren't so lucky. They will be seriously misled by this otherwise great textbook.

The book has a wealth of knowledge pertaining to all areas of educational research and is not just pertaining to quantitative research. It is very comprehensive, well written, and clear. The book is not well bound and many sections came loose with just moderate usage.

Book was in poor condition. The table of contents had come loose from the bindings and was shoved inside, and all of Chapter 1 was missing. I've rented books in the past that were in decent condition, but this book is unusable. I'm now in a bind, since the semester has started and I need the book, but this one simply won't work.

Book is out-of-date

I am renting this for a class and when I received it, it was practically falling apart. You can tell pages have been glued in because glue residue is left everywhere. The book cover is almost separate from the pages. I am very disappointed with the quality.

I purchased this book used, and the price was excellent. I was surprised that the book appeared to be new when it arrived (although I did find one page that had underlining written on it). However, after a few days the book started to fall apart. Now that I am three weeks into my course, I am ready to just put all the pages into a binder as they will not stay put. On top of that, I have found errors in the text. Specifically, I noted an incorrect answer in the Self-Check section in the back, so I informed my classmates. It seems that I have a first printing of the text, and some errors have been corrected for subsequent printings, but I have no way of know what corrections have been made. It seems like an errata sheet should have bee published and provided. (The books of some of my classmates did NOT have the wrong answers in the back, and that is a true indication that corrections were made in later printings of the same edition.) I do plan to contact the publisher to ask about an errata sheet, and I recommend anyone purchasing this text used do the same.

This book does a decent job at what it claims...As for the print and binding quality, I will have to rate that pretty poor. Mine has not fallen apart yet, but I have several friends who used the same book for class, and pages are already falling out. Unfortunately, if you have to get the book, I'm not sure there's a way around this, but it's something to expect. It is not (and does not proport to be) an introduction to research generally. It is an intro do Education/Psychology type research involving human subjects. Some of the information such as how to find a journal article you could just find out from a librarian, or by searching around online a bit, but there is a lot of terminology relating to epistemologies, and other field-specific terms for Education/Psyc type research. Overall a decent book, takes a while to get through, but not difficult material by any means.
Textboook for school. Ugh!
