Review: Educational Research: Fundamentals for the Consumer (5th Edition)

User Review  - Brandi Nicholauson - Goodreads

I have the 6th edition. McMillan breaks down every facet of educational research. Particularly useful if you are going to conduct any research, or want to better understand how research is written. Not the most exciting read, but useful. Read full review
