Tips for IA:
  1. Keep the experiment simple/university style experiment.
  2. Make sure to get a good quality data set that you can work with.
  3. Having good results with good analysis is better than a complicated experiment with poor data.
  4. Don't forget that a simple experiment works best.

A biography of President Woodrow Wilson included an entertaining quotation about the preparation time needed for speeches of varying lengths. Here is an excerpt from the book:
from quoteinvestigator.com
  • A member of the Cabinet congratulated Wilson on introducing the vogue of short speeches and asked him about the time it took him to prepare his speeches. He said:
  • “It depends. If I am to speak ten minutes, I need a week for preparation; if fifteen minutes, three days; if half an hour, two days; if an hour, I am ready now.” Josephus Daniels, The Wilson Era; Years of War and After, 1917-1923, p. 624 (1946)
