Reviews

"Yvonne Bui's How to Write a Master's Thesis should be mandatory for all thesis track master's students. It steers students away from the shortcuts students may be tempted to use that would be costly in the long run. The step by step intentional approach is what I like best about this book." -- Joel M. Cox
"This is the best textbook about writing an M.A. thesis available in the market." -- Hsin-I Liu
"This is the type of textbook that students keep and refer to after the class." -- Elizabeth Tolman
