Reviews

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)

"I have been using this book whilst writing my thesis and I want to express my sincere thanks to the authors as it has provided me with an excellent source of guidance and has made my life a lot easier over the past five months. I've recommended this book to a number of other PhD students and hope you continue to publish further editions as I found it to be an extremely valuable resource." (Chris De Gruyter, PhD Candidate at Monash University, Australia, March 2015)
