I first used this book at the University of Southampton for a second-year undergraduate course in Business Research Methods. I found it to be an excellent guide for students, particularly those planning to do a final-year dissertation. I am currently using the sixth edition for a course on dissertation preparation and research methods for students taking an accounting MSc at Royal Holloway, University of London. The book is clear and comprehensive, and relevant for most students, whether they follow a quantitative or a qualitative approach. I would recommend it strongly.

You've probably been required to buy this as part of a course - so the fact its reviewed is of little value to you - but rest assured - it is a good book and very helpful.

Marh Saunders is the gateway to writing an excellent proposal and dissertation.

It is recommended for all research tutors, students and companies alike. The points are clear
and simple to understand. This book has demystified research as an abstract thing.

It is just a student companion.
