Synopsis

Study Skills A Student Survival Guide by Kathryn L. Allen

This book is the Platinum Winner - 2006 of the MarCom Creative Awards. Postgraduate students require a variety of skills in addition to the specialist knowledge of their area of research, including organisation, time management, preparation and presentation of a seminar, and writing a thesis and a research paper. This outstanding title provides PhD and MSc students with advice on key issues relating to the organisation and presentation of their research. It helps students to deal with an increasingly competitive marketplace after completing their studies. It is clearly written and illustrated by professional lecturers. It covers the skills that the Research Councils expect students to develop during their doctoral training. It features 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. '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.
