"How do I create a good research hypothesis?""How do I know when my literature review is finished?""What is the difference between a sample and a population?""What is power and why is it important?"In an increasingly data-driven world, it is more important than ever for students as well as professionals to better understand the process of research. This invaluable guide answers the essential questions that students ask about research methods in a concise and accessible way. 100 Questions (and Answers) about Research Methods summarizes the most important questions that lie in those inbetween spaces that one could ask about research methods while providing an answer as well. This is a short book and intended for those individuals who need a refresher as to what the important topics are within this area of study as well as for those who are entirely new to the discipline and need a resource as to what the key questions are that one might ask. It's for graduate students preparing for comprehensive exams, researchers who need a reference, undergraduates in affiliated programs who will not be taking a primary course in research methods and anyone curious about how these tools can most effectively be used.
