Hi, dear all mountain bike lovers

Leicester Business School, UK. Would you Please spend a few minutes
to fill in this questionnaire, which investigates the factors influencing mountain bike
purchase decision for my dissertation.

Your personal information will be kept confidential as I shall not be
divulging your personal details in my dissertation i.e. the e-mail address of an
individual.

It is grateful to give me a little help.

Cheers!

Josh

that is the worst survey ever. i stopped answering questions after the first page because they don't make sense. I don't know whether you are a native English speaker or not, but if you are not, you might want to have one of your colleagues who is go over the questions and fix the numerous problems.

Your first question makes sense, then it tells me jump to question 3 (i chose "yes") but apparently that's if I chose "No."

You need some of your colleagues to look over this :-P

--OK nvm that made sense after i read it 3 times. But my last comment still holds...

Aside from the fact that this survey assumes you only have ONE mountain bike, it wasn't too bad for someone who does not speak english as a first language. Who has only 1 MTB??

He is a PhD candidate. It's unacceptable.

If you don't want to take the survey, don't take it. Don't come here and start *****ing about how you can't understand it.

I agree. He now knows where he needs to fix it. People don't need to be continually bashed on in their own thread especially if they are meaning no harm to others.

Hi, thanks for everybody's advices. I am not a native speaker. In fact, the dissertation is an independent work, hence, supervisor will not give me too many advices. Supervisor's responsibility is ensure your survey questions are ethical. If you guys really could not understand the questions on the questionnair, that's my fault. However, if you can answer the most of qustions as you can, it is still useful to me. Thank you everybody here. Josh Tseng
