Product Description

Review

"Many lecturers will be familiar with the concern of students trying to clarify what is meant by a literature review: this book does just that... The book has a logical flow but can also be dipped in and out of, dependent on the style of literature review to be undertaken. It is clearly laid out and easy to follow, and the sections are clearly defined... There is a useful glossary defining common terms. I would recommend this book."
-- British Journal of Occupational Therapy

I am a District Nursing student and writing a research proposal. A tutor recommended this book and it has helped so much. The book is so easy to read and understand, I would definitely recommend it to anyone new at research. It has helped me to finally decide upon my research question, carry out my literature search, critically appraise and synthesise the literature.

Format: Paperback
This book was on my reading list, and all I can say is if you're doing a nursing degree whatever branch you are, it helps make it more understandable. My lectures tend to go on a bit on the topic, but the book sums them up well with example cases for each area! Highly recommended!!

I bought this as I am completed a Professional Doctorate in Health and Social Care - having had no experience in Literature Reviews and Journals this gave me an understanding and basis to complete my first review. It also gives you information on how to complete your own piece of work. Excellent.

I cannot over-recommend this book - it is so thorough in its discussion of all key elements of the process of writing a literature review that it has provided me with invaluable assistance throughout my dissertation.
