A brilliantly written text, that is easy to read and informative. It will be re-considered when we re-instate our MSc programme as it would be a good tool for students to consider their long-term education. However, it is a little high level for the programme I requested it for.
Excellent book and it is insightful and informative for my students.
what an easy read for PHD students, it give a good insight of the expectations of the PHD, also very good for Ed D students
This book is most helpful to Ph.D. students. The authors of this book managed to cover most of the aspects Ph.D. students encounter. These include the motivations of doing a Ph.D., formulating the research question, choosing and changing supervisors, managing the ethics of academia, what to do with data, writing up and writer’s block, papers and publishing, networking, missing deadlines, non-traditional routes into Ph.D. study, undertaking part-time Ph.D.
A well structured book covering the many aspects of a PhD from initial motivations and designing a research question through to writer's block and the viva and beyond! Overall, an interesting read with a real human feel to it. A good book for anyone studying a PhD to have on their desk and dip into as and when needed.

Relevant and useful advice for all stages of the PhD journey. Many students still need this level of information and advice about negotiating this journey.
Good practical guide that offers enlightenment and advice for progressing with research projects.
Clear concise step by step guide.
A well-structured and accessible text, which offers reassurance that all those moments of insecurity, anxiety and self-doubt that so often accompany doctoral research are perfectly normal. I suspect that many PhD students will find themselves returning to this book at various times through their studies.
I didn't feel this was particularly useful in that it wasn't insightful as to difficulties that could be experienced and it didn't give candidates insider tips to writing that I could point them to, but it had some useful parts in it that were instructive and for some students it was good supplementary reading esp for those considering rather than doing the phd.
There are several students currently completing a Masters programme who have asked for information on further study. this text has been suggested to them.
