Research Designs is a clear, compact introduction to the principles of experimental and non-experimental design -- especially written for social scientists and their students. Spector covers major designs including: single group designs; pre-test/post-test designs; factorial designs, hierarchical designs; multivariate designs; the Solomon four group design; panel designs; and designs with concomitant variables. 'Bearing in mind the brevity (and hence cheapness) of the book, its coverage is extremely wide-ranging...As long as a basic grounding is achieved beforehand, attending to Spector's advice and comments should help budding researchers become aware of the issues and problems involved in practical research...the small outlay involved in buying the book will neither be regretted nor wasted.' -- Quality and Quantity, Vol 16, 1982
