  2. The "scientific method" doesn't actually exist, other than as a general description of some scientific activities. The methods of science depend on the kind of science one is engaged in. For example, many studies in biology are basically descriptive and observational--they can't really make use of experimental techniques (controlled variables; repetition, etc.). So, some steps aren't always possible, and the order those steps takes is often variable. Just something to keep in mind.
