    Description"I honestly found this better than my dissertation supervisor. It was never off my desk and I scanned it thoroughly and followed it religiously. Highly recommended with a proven technique to help you gain a good mark!" ("Amazon reviewer"). "This book is, well...excellent! Simply and succinctly it takes you through each stage of planning a dissertation." ("The Psychologist"). A dissertation is likely to be the largest single piece of work you will be asked to produce. This handy book guides you through the whole process: planning your dissertation project, managing it, and writing it up. It offers friendly and practical advice and addresses all the questions students ask, including: How do I choose a topic? How should I manage my time? How can I make best use of my supervisor? How many chapters should my dissertation have? And which is the best referencing system to use? "Excellent Dissertations! Second Edition" is a lively, concise and to-the point guide, which will steer you through the entire dissertation process.
