About The Book

This book has been so designed as to familiarize a beginner with the basic concepts of research, approaches to research, categories of research, preparation of research proposals, etc., on the one hand and to train him in the use of basic mathematical and statistical methods for his advantage. A researcher with no mathematical background will find it an acceptable foundation course in quantitative techniques. Research methodology is also taught as a basic course in the recently introduced M. Phil. programmers in many Indian Universities. The book, we hope, shall cater to their requirements as well.
