I bought this as suggested by a professor... only to find out that we cannot use Creswell as a source because the information is too general and not as relevant as the school wants. After reading the book, I kind of agree. It's find for a very general use, but some of the information makes it more confusing than helpful. If you want to learn about research design and are enrolled in classes, just check your school library section for articles on specific designs.

I have earlier editions of Creswell and find the book to be well written and easy to follow; he helps you to just "get it" and breaks the information down and makes it make sense....stats not my most liked but area but necessary and much needed part of the big picture.

Comprehensive and clear, Creswell provides a scientifically useful and extremely well written guide to research design. This book has to be one of the most important books I have read during my course of study.

If you are in a doctoral program or just thinking about one, get this book. If you are contemplating a career in research, either academic or practitioner, get this book. And if you are just trying to figure out what to book to get next for your kindle, get this book.

Yes, it's that good.

ADDENDUM:
I wrote this review months ago. Since then I've given this book as gifts to friends. It's interesting to me that in that time the price of this book has gone steadily UP! Amazon is no fool. They would not increase the price if there was not increasing demand. As such, if you are considering buying this book, save yourself some money by buying it TODAY. Chances are later it will cost you more.

I have been reading Creswell's work since I was a PhD student years ago. It is still very good and very useful. Now I am using this as a text for my research methods course. Students find it just as easy to read and just as useful as I did. This latest edition has more illustrations of the various methods than previous editions. That is a strength. It is fairly basic, but that, too, is a strength - it doesn't overwhelm the student with information they are not yet ready to process. If you want depth in any of the methods, you need to consult some of the original sources that Creswell cites. For a good, usable view of the basics, this is a very good book. My only problem, and this may be just my problem, is that Creswell is by his own admission a fan of mixed methods research, so he includes a lot on mixed methods. My experience is that students in academic settings will seldom use mixed methods only because this form of research tends to be more time consuming than allowed by academic constraints. Even so, it is a very respectable way of knowing, and students ought to be familiar with it.

This book does have some strengths - it is very scholarly and thorough. However, it was not very readable and tended to present topics sometimes at least, in an overly complex and jargon filled way. I found that Google searches were often more helpful at explaining the concepts. At the same time, this is a good reference for a serious researcher who is revising a paper, but a beginner to the research process is likely to find it unhelpful/excessively erudite. In sum, should be a required text for doctoral students, but handled with care for mere beginning graduate students.

When I purchased this book, I thought I’d be getting the legit 5th edition, not a book from “bad” batch that was accidentally printed and now being sold as the “real thing”. C’mon. In my class of 20, two others students had the same issue. With 3-4 errors (typos, spacing, punctuation) on each page, it can be difficult to take the book seriously and follow along. This version SHOULD NOT be sold for $40! I should’ve gotten my book from the original publisher.

The contents are not easy to understand and require some in-depth reading to comprehend the direction the author is leading. You do not read this book from the front to the back. The author covers methods that are not even explained till you're further in the contents. Then at theses points he reiterates the previous tasks and methods, to then go into detail and explain the means. You will spend a lot of time in this book and the use of the multiple page markers to refresh ideas. Since this is my first class with this type of subject matter, I still give the book five stars because I have never felt the need to locate another one. Be patient and take your time, rushing this course will only create headaches.
The content of the text is good. It would make a very useful reference textbook if the editing wasn’t so god awful. Typos are abundant with random characters appearing all over the place. The general typesetting is no better, making it nearly impossible to read in some sections as entire paragraphs morph into a single long word. I don’t know how the past editions compare but this is honestly one of the worst examples of bad editing I’ve ever seen.
