This text gives clear discussions of the pros and cons of different approaches, practical hints and tips and good follow-on references.
However, this text would be less suitable for "pure" computer science students.
My experience is that (despite support from supervisors) many students have difficulties in at least one of the following areas (i) scoping a project (ii) defining their research area and choosing appropriate research techniques, and (iii) clearly, effectively, and critically, reviewing relevant literature. I believe this text provides clear guidance for students to follow in these areas.
I am belatedly reviewing this book after many years of using it with Masters students. This book is an excellent prop for Masters and PhD students who are struggling to scope and plan their research. I have had much positive feedback from students on its utility for them. It is even more effective if their supervisor can signpost them to relevant sections like the diagram on the Research process, and the literature review section that distinguishes between author- centric and issue-centric approaches (a concept that may struggle with). It is written clearly and well-organised.
Though going to class would sure help if this is all new to you.
