Useful pre-reading for Level 6 and Level 7 students about to embark on dissertation. The advice is better tailored for older students, with some experience of independent living and the professional workplace.
The book is full of small, practical exercises, such as asking what type of researcher are you: doctor, detective or explorer? These exercises can be used by dissertation supervisors while a student is refining their research question, and to keep reminding them of their research question during the process.
New masters students have questions about their work and this book goes a long way to providing useful and practical answers. As such, it can save a supervisor a lot of time. I would have liked to have seen an index included and think links to further reading would have been useful.
A realistic view of the thesis' process that is refreshing and instructive to students
A really good book adopting a different approach to advices to students. A book to read !
