“This text provides a broad coverage, focused approach for dissertation, balanced approach between quantitative and qualitative designs, and excellent examples.”
“I wish this text was available when I was working on my dissertation as it would have demystified the process greatly!”
“The title is wonderful and attention getting. It’s practical and consistent with the title in terms of compliance with requirements while seeking the path of least resistance toward completion of a quality product.”
“[S]traightforward, well-written, concise and not too cumbersome….gets to the root of what students need to know. I like the detailed explanations and examples for writing each section of the dissertation.…The text explains and gives examples of how to write the methodology and the results. I also think the student suggestions are very helpful.”
“The text is well organized.…It includes chapters on the presentation of both quantitative and qualitative results which are particularly welcome in PhD programs that value paradigmatic diversity and do not expect students to conform to the assumptions of a single paradigm such as positivism.”
Excellent resource for new PhD students. The authors provide a wealth of information on the topics of importance to graduate students.
Useful practical information to complement more scholarly information about research.
A good development on the previous edition; enhancing a number of points/apsect well.
The book serves as a nice supplemental to the primary course text. The changes in the new edition offer valuable clarifications and examples.
I think that this will be a very useful book for students taking my dissertation proposal writing course.
Have used previous editions and found it extremely helpful to students.
Adopted Roberts The Dissertation Journey as a more general guidance than Surviving.
Clear and lucid text. Easy to use. Appropriate for doctoral students in architecture.
This text provides a good structure for the entire thesis/dissertation pathway. It is very useful in my department's required professionalization seminar for all incoming graduate students.
