About this book
From proposal to examination, producing a dissertation or thesis is a challenge. Grounded in decades of experience with research training and supervision, this fully updated and revised edition takes an integrated, down-to-earth approach drawing on case studies and examples to guide you step-by-step towards productive success.
Early chapters frame the tasks ahead and show you how to get started. From there, practical advice and illustrations take you through the elements of formulating research questions, working with software, and purposeful writing of each of the different kinds of chapters, and finishes with a focus on revision, dissemination and deadlines. How to Write a Better Thesis presents a cohesive approach to research that will help you achieve your goals.

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)
