Very clever way of explaining the importance of theoretical background. Something that I really needed in my courses.
Will be very helpful for my students undertaking their research projects
difficult to access the electronic version
This is an excellent resource for BA Dissertation students who sometimes struggle with the aims and purpose of the literature review.
The easy, relaxed but creative format will, I feel, capture student attention and help develop their understanding of this key concept.
This book is great for students to begin to develop their literature reviews. It offers an 'easy to read ' guide on a topic that many students struggle with.
This really is a quick guide with some key ideas on developing a literature review to an argument. It is better suited to a narrative and possibly a scoping review but not necessarily to a systematic literature review. I can see undergraduate using this as initial guide to draft their literature reviews, therefore it is worth adopting for L6.
Quick, clear ,succinct,helpful advice for students undertaking a literature review.
Accessible and focused
this is a neat little book in many ways (I guess this mirrors the others in the series) and it did take me just an hour to read through
I think it will help our students with the issue of criticality in building their arguments and I shall use it to inform my teaching and can signpost toward the book appropriately
If I have a quibble (and it's not about content) it's about presentation - I saw some grammatical and typo type problems but that's a fairly minor thing really.
An easy to pick up book for those new to literature reviewing.
Intend to use in Professional Studies Group for Secondary PGCE trainees completing their professional development research projects.
I am not sure what level this is appropriate for. Maybe this is an issue of national education systems, but here in Germany, this book is too basic for most undergraduates. Even though the points in it are valid and true, in their bullet point form they cannot tackle the more difficult issues our students query.
A small book which captures the essentials of writing a review with excellent clarity.
A clear and quick guide to support students in turning their literature review in an argument. This book was easy to navigate and accessible to all levels of learners on the level 6 programme.
It is user friendly and provides many 'aha' moments for students who are struggling to understand what is expected of them.
Helps students develop their critical evaluation skills
this short fix, is essential for students as it highlights the necessary points without the detailed account common in other literature books. Students found it easy to use.
Such a clever little book!
The author breaks down all the key messages and makes them accessible in a simple, yet effective way.
I am sure all students will find it extremely useful when working on their literature review, especially those at post-graduate and doctoral levels.
ADOPTED AS PART OF DISSERTATION SKILLS MODULE
great little go to book full of hits and tips
This is perfect for my level 7 module which involves writing a critical literature review.
