I'm sure this is a good resource for some nursing research classes, but as a required text for my nursing research class, it did not provide the information I needed to complete assignments. This is more a school issue rather than a book issue. There are other nursing research books out there that explain things in a manner which is easier for the novice nurse researcher to interpret. Because I needed to find other sources which explained things in a manner that was easier to interpret I'm giving the book three stars. It has lots of information, but if you are new to nursing research it doesn't use language which is effective at helping the learner grasp concepts easily.

The content of book itself is great. however I would recommend buying it in vitalsource bookshelf format as I had to go back and do. It is a far better user format for a book of this size and scope. I had bought kindle books before (for macbook and iPhone) but was rather limited in my experience with them. In this book, there is no search function ("X-ray"as I just found out it was called) or page numbers to reference when they are listed in class. This really hurts the functionality of a textbook of this size. I realized this totally limits the use of a kindle in this fashion. It actually makes the book purchased quite useless. I called to to ask for a refund based on these issues, but because it was greater than 7 days, I could not obtain one. The employee said "it is assumed the entire book can be read in 7 days" so they would not issue one. I reminded her that this was a 600 page printed college textbook designed to be read over a 4 month semester and that my class started after I bought the book. Despite this, she still insisted it is assumed I read it in 7 days. Very pleasant customer service rep but the logic regarding the product they were selling and it's use lacked some common sense. sorry, last kindle textbook for me.
Nowhere did the description disclose that this was the international edition. The picture sure didn't. Even states on the cover Not authorized for sale in US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, or Virginia Islands. I hope it is close enough to the version I assumed I was ordering to compete my class.
- The book I received is not the book pictured
- it's actually the South Asian Edition, for the specific countries listed on the book's cover, & states "circulation outside this territory is strictly prohibited"
Got this book as a rental. It was brand new! I was very impressed by this. I barely cracked the pages for my course, so the next person getting this book it will be practically new as well.
Bought this text as optional, additional reference to use in studying for my doctoral comps exam and found it to be the absolutely most useful text of all of my books, including those required in several of my classes! It is comprehensive, well-designed, and avoids frivolous detail. I would recommend it to all graduate nursing students without reservation.

Good book for for nursing research classes. This one was required by my FNP program. It was a lot of vocabulary and terms. I did not feel like this is what I should be doing at the graduate level.
This item is a South Asian edition which is not stated on Amazon. This item clearly states on the cover that it is illegal to circulate outside of Southeast Asia Territory. I live in the USA and last I knew Amazon was based out of the USA as well.
