'I would recommend students to purchase this book because I think it would provide them with everything they needed for undertaking a project or dissertation. I particularly welcome the fact that it encourages them to approach their research in a reflective way and seeks to develop skills such as time management which are relevant to future employability.' - Professor Wyn Grant, University of Warwick, UK 'There are a great deal of texts on the market that attempt toappeal to a whole range of cohorts, including undergraduates, postgraduates and professional researchers. This text has the advantage of being addressed primarily to undergraduate study and is linked to a book on postgraduate study.' Dr Jonathan Grix, Senior Lecturer, University of Birmingham
