This is a module with a wide range and includes quantitative and qualitative methods. The list below should be seen as a start to essential readings. You are not expected to read multiple books on the same subjects(s) (but feel free to do so if you can!), but a good approach when trying to learning a new topic is try relevant chapters from a few different books and find the book(s) that you learn from most easily and use them.
