Not exactly a Guide to Practice
By A. O. Slo "texcalgal" - March 17, 2009
This book is very well written and can be very educational, however you should realize what it is, and what it is not. It is predominantly about research: how to read it, how to incorporate the findings, how to participate in it, how to conduct it. This has a very high degree of theory and very little practice. I found a section on how to search online for medical and allied health articles very helpful, however I was hoping to find more suggestions on current practice procedures relating to the most up to date studies and that is definitely not what this is.
Reqiured for a graduate class--what can I say.

As advertised. Delivered faster than the speed of light. Amazon Prime--Yay! This book is actually clear, concise, and unencumbered in its narrative. Not bad it you have to read about evidence-based practice.

I purchased a textbook for graduate school. Almost 80% of the book was highlighted through and written on. I was thoroughly displeased.
