"It is an excellent text and includes an excellent learning platform (SAGE Vantage) that integrates easily with any Learning Management System. Theoretical research is covered, but students also have the opportunity to complete self-assessments and are given feedback for practical application on those assessments. The instructional resources are fantastic – PowerPoint slides, lecture notes, case studies, class activities, web exercises, and a test bank. In addition, students love SAGE Vantage. Each section of a chapter is broken up into manageable reading with Knowledge Checks and Video Activities to immediately assess learning."
