If you are struggling with research methods or SPSS it is much better to get help early on rather than waiting until exam or data analysis time, letting all the questions mount up, getting more and more confused – and finally realising you’ve got a mountain to climb and no more time. No question is too silly – often the questions you think are the silliest are the most useful ones to get clear in your head early on.
