Research Design: Qualitative, Quantitative, and Mixed Methods Approaches, 3rd Edition by John W. Creswell

approaches I by John W. Creswel1. Three elements of inquiry. Several devel-opments in the last decade have caused a reexamination of this stance. A mixed methods design is useful to capture the best of both quanti-tative and qualitative approaches.

Further, it has its own distinct literature (see Creswell & Plano Clark, 2011), and thus I wanted to limit the scope of this book to qualitative approaches. Accordingly, I have chosen to keep the five approaches that I started with and to expand within these five approaches.

                The Bestselling Text is Completely Updated and Better than Ever!Praise for the Third Edition:“I have used the older edition with great success. The new one is even better.” —Kathleen Duncan, University of La Verne

The Third Edition of the bestselling text Research Design by John W. Creswell enables readers to compare three approaches to research—qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods—in a single research methods text. The book presents these three approaches side by side within the context of the process of research from the beginning steps of philosophical assumptions to the writing and presenting of research. Written in a user-friendly manner, Creswell's text does not rely on technical jargon. He cuts to the core of what a reader needs to know to read and design research in part by showcasing ideas in a scaffold approach so that the reader understands ideas from the simple to the complex. Key updates to the Third Edition

Reviews: 7
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.
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.
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.
grand star
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.

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.
Risky Strong Dromedary
First off, why is the digital version twice as expensive as the print? That literally makes no sense so shame on Amazon for that one. Secondly, the digital version is a vastly inferior product, the text doesn't line up, the tables are all broken up over several pages and not really comprehensible. It is not hard to fix this on the front end so in the end you get a broken product for more money. Nicely done Amazon.
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.
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.
