I found the book contains all the relavant topics to help students understand the requirements of an undergraduate project. Most essentially I think it will better guide student in carrying out their and writting literature review and methodology. It will also help students understand the difference between aims and objective and how to write them. However, as it was intended to be a recommended text for engineering students, I find this book cannot be an essential book because it is more specifically written to guide humanities, arts and social sciences students.
This title is also available on SAGE Research Methods, the ultimate digital methods library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
