Dissertation Writing
 
Therese Paterson C. Psychol. Provided the following reference:
 
Excellent Dissertations by Peter Levin. The ISBN number is 13 978033 5238613. to find it on Amazon use the link below:- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Excellent-dissertations-Student-Friendly-Guides-Peter/dp/0335238610/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458008583&sr=1-1
 
She added the following description:
 
“I used this book extensively when undertaking a research Masters almost a decade ago. Two things I remember are that in the write up section, there was useful input about how to prune data. I had fallen in love with some aspects of my data which were fascinating but not totally relevant to the question and this book helped me to see that I was risking being diverted from the main focus of the dissertation. Secondly rather than just focusing on the academic aspects of undertaking a research degree, the author included a section on managing stress, how to seek support and managing conflict in the supervisory relationship."
