Final year dissertations often constitute a major part of a student's degree - as a result, they can cause a lot of unnecessary stress and panic. This book aims to maximise the potential of its readers, guiding them clearly through the steps involved in putting together a successful piece of work. There are chapters on: what to investigate, what research to carry out, how best to do the research, what literature to refer to, how to write up and present your information to the best of your ability, and how to get the most out of your dissertation supervisor.
