4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy 21 Feb. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Got this as recommended by my dissertation supervisor last September. I am in my final year studying Architectural Technology. It came in very handy as a reference tool and for another opinion on how to present or compile certain parts of the research. A must have for anyone doing their final year dissertation! Would recommend getting it early on in the research, that's when it's used a lot. No point getting it a couple of weeks before the due date!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it for some extra advise 21 Feb. 2015
By James
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this to help with my dissertation as a final year student: BSc (Hons) Construction Management. It was very useful and had good methods for setting out your work and what to include in all the sections. Make sure you read it in conjunction with your module guide and supervisor's advise and you'll be on to a winner. Good luck to all those writing dissertations!
