I thought this contained some useful suggestions and it definitely made things less intimidating by spelling out typical situations and ways of dealing with them. It keeps thing short and to the point and uses lists and sample forms to good effect. This is great for students who are already stressed about the normal PhD stuff. My biggest complaint is that it focused entirely on exact sciences rather than going just one step further and including information about social sciences and qualitative research as well.

Vinh Hoang tan If you think this book is good, you should not give it low rating just because it does not cover your field of study. I remember that at the beginning of this book, the author already mentions that it focuses on natural science...

Erin Reilly-Sanders For me, 2 star rating indicates that my personal reading experience of a book was "okay." It is not intended to be an evaluation of the book's objective quality nor an indicator of someone else's personal reading experience.
