“The A-Z Guide of Applied Linguistics Research Methods is a slim, clearly designed, easy-to-use instrument than aims to assist researchers and ‘consumers’ of research … to quickly get an overview of research methods in applied linguistics, together with the practices and terminology that go with them. … It can function as a primer or as a go-back-to type of guide, and its authors are to be commended for this welcome addition to the literature on research methods in applied linguistics.” (Simone Curzio Bacchini, Reference Reviews, Vol. 30 (8), 2016)|The demands of proper statistical analysis can be painful, but without the proper information that this book contains, research would be flawed. This book merits to be attached to your computer with a bungee cord.' Jean-Marc Dewaele, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
'A very useful book both for instructors and students. One of the hard parts of teaching research methods is to review key concepts, which this book makes easy.' Yasuhiro Shirai, Case Western Reserve University, USA
