Researching and Writing a Dissertation Summary

Researching and Writing a Dissertation: for Business Students by Colin Fisher

Taking a step-by-step approach, this book will guide the student through choosing, planning, researching and writing a dissertation. Readers are encouraged to develop relevant skills and each step is illustrated by an example of what to do (and sometimes of what not to do). Crucially, the assessment criteria is explained so that students fully understand the objectives of their work. Acknowledging that project work is often not sequential, but demands consideration of several stages at once, it advises how to juggle these challenges.
