From reviews: q...There are good sections on writing academically at master's level, how to get published and the benefits for postgraduates and the profession of sharing work. The authors conclude with a useful chapter on applying postgraduate skills in the workplace. This excellent guide will also be an invaluable resource in areas of study other than the intended health and social care field.q Nursing Standard, Nov 13a19, 2013 This revised and updated edition of Study Skills for Masteras Level Students adopts a reflective approach using exercises that are related to the development of the skills required to make the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate thinking and writing. Questions and activities encourage students to identify the skills that the postgraduate student should possess and to demonstrate an understanding of how those skills are developed. Topics covered include: * Critical thinking * Developing independent study skills * Finding and using literature * Applying postgraduate skills in the workplace * Writing at Masteras level * How to get published. The book is easy to use and jargon-free with clearly defined learning goals. Reflection points are included in order to support independent learning and enquiry, and there are also suggestions for additional reading throughout the book. Study Skills for Masteras Level Students can therefore be used as an independent student study tool or by lecturers in workshop settings.
