Helps students to deal with an increasingly competitive marketplace after completing their studiesClearly written and illustrated by professional lecturersCovers the skills that the Research Councils expect students to develop during their doctoral trainingFeatures handy quick tips, checklists and key remember points so that students can dip into it in any order throughout their research or read in stages as their work develops This easy-to-use guide on study skills is also of practical value to new supervisors wanting to ensure their students are equipped with the transferable skills needed to take them through their PhD and beyond. From the reviews: I am left with just one question: why should readers pick this manual as opposed to others? One answer is timing: Due to this book s newness, its lists of websites and the like for additional information will prove highly reliable Second, the fact that it was written by several people, each one an expert in the area he or she discusses Yet the ultimate answer rests with the book s conciseness, its coverage of so much advice on so many (related) subjects IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATIONS, March 2006

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
