    Review quote
    'Study Skills for International Postgraduates" is an excellent introduction to the culture and demands of Anglo-American post-graduate education. The sections on how to construct papers are especially useful, even for those already familiar with Anglo-American practices. This is a valuable "how-to" manual for those undertaking study abroad.' - Herman Schwartz, University of Virginia, USA 'Extremely comprehensive and detailed, Study Skills for International Postgraduates is a 'must-have' for all graduate students. The writing is clear and concise, with excellent descriptions and examples provided throughout. Students will find the suggestions for time management, study skills, and organizing research and the writing process invaluable.' - Kristen P. Williams, Clark University, USA 'Extensive in its coverage, Study Skills for International Postgraduates is written in a friendly, accessible style and is sure to be a great, practical resource for international students.' - Hayo Reinders, Middlesex University, UK 'The most concrete and practical guide on the market on how to achieve a postgraduate degree, with a maximum of how-to skills and competencies.' - Lotte Rienecker, University of Copenhagen, Denmark 'This book outlines the core skills vital for successful postgraduate study. It will not only assist international postgraduates but will prove a useful guidebook for any student embarking on the postgraduate journey.' - Dennis Grube, Griffith University, Australia
