    1. Your journey through understanding Research Methods and Statisitcs will be unique and not every textbook appeals to every student.  Below I have made some suggestions for textbooks, but you should browse them and decide for yourself which will be the most appropriate.

      At the end of the list, I have also added some printed texts that you can consider buying, however there is no requirement for you to do so.
