Review quote

Anyone seeking doctoral status would benefit from dipping into or immersing themselves in this well written text. Clearly formatted pages with bold section headings make for quick and easy access to relevant passages where readers can watch the authors skilfully untangle the mysteries of research language such as 'theoretical framework', methodology and data analysis. I recommend Achieving Your Doctorate in Education to students and new supervisors involved in the doctoral research process. -- ESCalate * ESCalate *
