Summary
This book is for postgraduate students working for research degrees in institutions of higher education wherever the language of instruction is English. Irrespective of field of study, it will make their work and life more productive, effective and enjoyable. The Research Student's Guide to Success: identifies the skills and strategies which make for success as a postgraduate research student; offers practical advice which can be readily adapted to meet individual needs; provides essential support for all research students; encourages research students to take responsibility for their own progress; acknowledges both the hardships and the pleasures of being a research student; and builds confidence throughout. The book is easy to dip into and is written in conversational style. Interest and realism are added through anecdotes, extracts from literature and pithy quotations. The book will also be useful to undergraduate, diploma and taught masters students doing projects and dissertations
