A down-to-earth guide about writing a thesis or dissertation that provides many helpful ideas on crafting, implementing and defending a thesis or dissertation.

Usually a guide of this nature focuses on the actual implementation of the research. This is not the focus of this guide. Instead of examining such aspects as identifying appropriate sample size, field testing the instrument and selecting appropriate statistical tests, this guide looks at many of the quasi-political aspects of the process. Such topics as how to select a supportive committee, making a compelling presentation of your research outcomes and strategies for actually getting the paper written are discussed.
The guide is a free ebook which can be located through the library catalogue
