Overview

This is a research book with a difference. It tells the truth about the research process. Each phase of a research project is addressed in the simultaneous order in which researchers often undertake them. Importantly, the book recognizes that writing up a research project is rarely organized in the form in which the dissertation is finally presented.

Readers are given guidelines to help them assess the kind of researcher they are and the all important question of how to chose a research project is answered. The book is easy to read and covers:

- An explanation of what lies behind the requirements that need to be met by a research proposal

- What readers should expect from their supervisors and what the researched organisation might expect from readers

- Support for the confused and anxious student

This book will guide the student through a challenging time, giving quick and realistic support to enable a stress-free completion of their final dissertation and project write up.
