Can anyone suggest a good experiment design book for the social sciences?


Recommended Posts

Looking for a competent, easy-to-read book(s) for experiment and quasi-experiment design for the social sciences. 


While there are plenty of good books for education, the hard sciences, etc, I'd really be appreciative if someone could suggest a resource specifically for us social scientists!

It begins of course on what you already know, and if you are refering to statistical analysis or experiment drafting.


If you are completely new to how an experiment is formed, I would begin with Cozby




He does an excellent job going over the basics.


If you need to learn basic statistics and data analysis I would go with Pagano




If you are intermediate or knowledgable on both experiment design and statistics, and want to freshen up or further learn, consider Howell
