This excellent book will show you how to set about researching. It gives helpful advice on how to use the internet to best effect, taking into account copyright and plagiarism.
It gives tips on how to interview, how to give a presentation, how to create questionnaires and the possible problems encountered when trying to convert word processed documents into HTML format.
It also covers that all-important research topic - how to reference your work and display a bibliography. If you are new to undertaking research, this is the book for you. If you already have some research experience, you will find this book can still offer useful tips and ideas.
I thoroughly recommend this book.
