A selection of up-to-date books to help you learn how to study more effectively


Writing a dissertation is a long but often very rewarding process in which you will produce a piece of work looking in depth at an area of your subject. A dissertation is longer than a normal assignment, although a lot of the lessons you have learned in your time at university will still be relevant when researching, writing and redrafting. A dissertation is a chance to show off your knowledge and research.
These books will help you plan and complete your dissertation project.
