Product description

Condition - Almost as new

***** Amazon reviews for the 2nd edition: "Best book ever. Bought this for a friend because, even though I finished my masters over a year ago, I'm not parting with mine. This book got me my first." "I bought the book, stuck to the steps... and my dissertation scored among the top five in class! This book helped me so much, you have no idea. Every time I was lost - the book knew what to do. Loved it and I'm giving it 5 stars. It honestly kept me from going insane during that difficult time." "Saved me. Fantastic book full of extremely useful things, really easy to read yet very detailed, love the collection of useful verbs! It's my dissertation bible!" What should I put in my introduction? What do I need to do to write a literature or systematic review? How do I explain my research methods and write up my findings? How should I conclude my dissertation? Help! How do I prepare for a viva? Succeeding with your Master's Dissertation, Third Edition , does what few other books do: it carefully guides the student through the entire dissertation process from start to finish, speaking directly to the reader and offering clear, straightforward and practical advice. The author uses clear illustrations of what students should do- or not do - to reach their full potential, helping them to succeed with their dissertation and avoid common pitfalls along the way. Thoroughly revised and updated, this essential handbook takes the student from research proposal, through literature reviews, research methods, and writing up, through to submission and marking, featuring: Essential material on the benefits of using university library databases and social media in research A chapter on good referencing and avoiding plagiarism, plus coverage of research ethics Expanded material on submitting a research proposal, including sample proposal forms for guidance Advice on the emotional journey and where to find assistance and support Information on further reading. This is key reading for any social science, business, humanities or healthcare student required to complete a dissertation as part of their studies. This book will also prove useful for undergraduate students considering postgraduate studies and for supervisors facilitating dissertation supervision.

Oxfam Bookshop Bath

The Bath Oxfam Books and Music shop has been open since 2001. We stock a wide selection of books, vinyl, cds and dvds but always welcome donations to keep our shelves full and interesting. Following our shop refit in 2009 we have a modern, bright and spacious interior where customers are welcome to browse at their leisure. We do not specialise in any one area but often seem to do particularly well with History books and Vinyl. Thanks to the wonderful donations we receive on a daily basis through the door, and from our local Book Banks, we offer our customers a fantastic range of stock both in the shop and online. Please come and see for yourselves!
