Writing for school is very stressful and not knowing what is expected makes it even more so. This book was recommended by my professor who likely did not want to spend a whole class or two walking us through the process. This book is an excellent resource to give you the guidance you need to get your literature review done. As with anything, getting started is the hardest part, but once you start, this book will take you through step-by-step. Highly recommend.

This book seems to be written for an undergraduate audience. If you are a graduate students and/or if you have already taken a course in research methods, chapters 7-9 are probably the only ones that will be useful, new information for you. Since these chapters are helpful, I would still recommend the book to graduate students if you can find it for no more than $15, but I don't think it's worth much more than that.

If you're writing your first literature review, this is the book for you! I purchased it as a required text for a graduate-level writing seminar. Galvan synthesizes everything you need to know to produce a quality review of the literature. The chapters are short and the text is easy to read. Additionally, there are 7 sample literature reviews included.

One more thing to keep in mind, purchase an APA or MLA handbook to be sure your citations are in correct format.

By having this book in my hand I have been able to sort through what is quality research and also how to evaluate quantitative and qualitative articles.

My professor HIGHLY recommended this and I like it but I don't love it. I guess it's supposed to be the best though.
