5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Panic, 15 Oct 2010
This review is from: Planning Your PhD (Pocket Study Skills) (Paperback)
This little book should have "Don't Panic" in large, friendly letters on its front. It is a very approachable guide to what is (from the outside) a pretty inscrutable topic. That's not to say it doesn't ask tough questions such as "Why do a PhD at all?" but it leads the reader, an apprentice researcher in some ways, through the basics of doctoral study, from choosing a University and getting to know your supervisor right through to research plans, writing and publication. I wish it had been around in the 1980s when I browsed and floundered through my first ideas for research - and I expect my supervisors would have been grateful, too!

I was freaking out about an interview for a PhD, I read this book it gave me a sound simple framework with which to plan my Q&A, it made me think deeply about how I needed to structure my arguments in my noodle so I wouldnt waffle and blow it. I got a place. nuff said.
