This book guides the student through the transition from passive learner to active researcher. Covering everything from choosing and refining a research topic to writing the actual report, the book shows students how to manage their workload, and how to approach the viva. Key areas covered include:
- personal time management
- aims and objectives
- working towards success
- common problems
- the final report and publishing your results
- the viva voce examination.
It is ideal for all final year undergraduates and students on Masters degrees, and contains useful information for course supervisors and tutors to pass on to the students who approach them for advice.
