Editorial Reviews

Review

"I was familiar with an earlier (3rd) version of this text. I thought it was an excellent resource for graduate students and faculty mentoring graduate student researchers and/or grant writers. I was equally impressed with the 5th edition of this text and have recommended it to all faculty in both of the departments in which I teach research courses." (Dr. Lorraine Pearl-Kraus 2011-02-25)

Format: Paperback
As any graduate student will tell you acceptance onto a Ph.D program is largely based on submitting a successful proposal. Thereafter, as long as the researcher adheres to the proposal, graduation is virtually guaranteed. I am a Ph.D student who used the book to construct my proposal, which was summarily accepted by the research committee with minor changes. This appears to be contrary to what many Ph.D hopefuls experience. The book is expensive however I would highly recommend it. The proposal hurdle is well worth overcoming professionally.

I am approaching my PhD proposal and am finding this book a very practical guide. I recommend it as one of your sources to guide your sources; make sure you check with your PhD supervisor and committee too!

Interesting read but most of the four assigned chapters were, more or less, common sense. This made the reading pretty dull.

This text was required by a professor in one of my graduate level courses. This has provided a helpful overview of the grant writing process and provided a framework from which I can work to develop skill in this area.
