Media Reviews
...this sensibly-priced book is written in clear, jargon-free language and will be immediately accessible to novice research students. - Nursing Times Research I'drecommend a student to read it cover to cover at least three times inthe course of a PhD - when you are planning to start research, a few monthsafter enrolment and towards the end and to keep it as part of your essential library...Highly recommended. Buy it. - Exchanges ...contains lots of good practical advice...should help to give the research student more self-confidence in undertaking aresearch degree. - Studies in Higher Education This book is a perfect introduction to these starting points and the additional ways of working that need to be developed in order to succeed as a researcher...Pat Cryer has provoked me to many thoughts and revisions of my understanding and expectations of researchin a productive, knowledgeable, straight forward style. - New Academic Dr. Cryer's book is absolutely outstanding, in four main respects. First, it is comprehensive in its scope, covering everything from applying to undertaking a research degree. Second, it is applicableto PhDs across the board. Third, the book is exceptionally well-written and highly readable. Finally, at each stage Dr. Cryer has included questions and exercises to enable readers to reflect on their practice, check out whether they are on track and,if not, discover how they might return themselves to it. Overall, Dr. Cryer hasmade a major contribution to the field and produced a quite exceptional book. It ought tobe compulsory reading for intending or actual postgraduates and for academic staff teaching research training programmes. - Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education One of the most pleasing aspects of this book is that it attempts to inform the reader about the processes involved in research degrees while recognizing the vital fact that given the diversity of students and supervisors there is no single method or 'right' way - The Chair of the National Postgraduate Committee (1993 - 1995)
