Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the book reviews:

“After reading the book, you are left with no doubt as to what is required to write a thesis, as well as how to undertake the task using a systematic approach. … It should be mandatory reading for all postgraduate students embarking on a master’s degree or higher academic qualification. I highly recommend it.” (S. M. Godwin, Computing Reviews, August, 2014)
