Product description

Most advanced educational courses now include a dissertation or research project of some kind. For many students this can be a terrifying experience. Although colleges and universities may have different systems, basic principles for planning research and making the compromise between what is desirable and what is feasable are the same. This book aims to provide a plain guide to ways of producing a dissertation with minimum stress and frustration. It covers such areas as choosing a subject, planning the total work, selecting research methods and techniques, written style and presentation.
