A must read for all research students!

“The core material in Professor Cryer’s previous editions is classic. I welcome this new edition setting it into current contexts.” – PhD supervisor

“When I was doing my own PhD, Pat Cryer’s book was my constant reference companion. Now I am recommending her latest edition to my own students.” – PhD supervisor

  • employment issues (including undergraduate teaching)
  • the Internet as a resource for research.
There are new chapters on:
  • developing the research proposal
  • succeeding as an ‘overseas’ research student
  • ethics in research
  • personal development planning (PDP)
