کتاب بدکی نیست.تنها اشکالش این است که آنقدر مثال و نمونه می آورد که از اصل مطلب،منحرف می شوی.
برخی تعریهایش هم خیلی گیج کننده است.اما در کل بدک نبود

Really wish I had read this book when I was working on my MA thesis.

This book is one of the best that I have read on how to design a research project. Contemporary studies are referenced as authentic examples from the field of L2 learning. The section of statistics in the chapter on analysing quantitative data was particularly helpful in explaining which measurement to use.

I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone doing second language research.

Worldview:

I HIGHLY recommend this introduction on how to conduct, measure, and report on research. This book spells out the why and how in plain English, and includes more helpful information in the appendices.
