The text is difficult to read and there are far more engaging books on this subject. Really not applicable to widening participation students.
I will be recommending this book for health care degree learners. The book is set out well and has a variety of information that is useful not only when preparing for dissertation in both health care and social work. Some sections go beyond dissertation and thus also can be an invaluable reference book when in professional practice.
this text is recommended for all Undergraduate students about to embark on their major project
very helpful book easy to navigate.
This the perfect text for our public health department's junior year writing course.
This book was sent during the summer when I was unable to review it in enough depth. However I shall be suggesting it as a supplemental text
This book will be recommended to our students. It contains some invaluable chapters that students will find useful.
This is a useful text which contains valuable information for all undergraduate students completing their dissertaion. I have given it a personal recomendation to a number of students who have learning differences as I feel it will benefit them particualrly.
In addition to midwifery students, I will also be recomending this text to nursing, radipgraphy and social work students I am in contact with during Interprofessional learning modules.
A book I have recommended to several students enbarking on writing their dissertation. No feedback as yet as to whether sudents have found it useful.
Presented in a question and answer ‘manual’ style text this book is a must have for undergraduates wishing to get a successful grasp on the complex field of research. It offers a clear introduction to various types, approaches and methods used and accepted within the discipline of Health and Social Care. Te title of the book does not do the text justice - it would be advisable to obtain this user friendly read before approaching any written paper/essay involving research, and can then be referred to during extended projects as a guide to focus and keep on track!! With plenty of suggested further reading this book makes a great companion on an otherwise, LONELY journey.
