Getting ahead in tertiary study: a practical guide for business, social science and arts students

Macqueen, C, 1998, Getting ahead in tertiary study: a practical guide for business, social science and arts students, UNSW Press, Sydney.

The strengths of this text relate to the coverage of undergraduate research methodology in the social science area. Although covering the usual exams, note-taking and essay writing, it also includes chapters on the use of demographics and statistics in an essay or presentation, social policy research, consumer market research and use of electronic data sources. The information about the use of the Internet may be a bit dated but would provide a base to work from. It should prove useful to both the new and more experienced student in the social sciences area.
