A dissertation can be confusing – especially if you are writing one for the first time. I was in a similar situation a year ago – confused, stressed, sleep-deprived, and frustrated. But I managed to get out of it. Here’s how I got out of that pathetic state that I found myself in, as I was trying to get my dissertation right. Of course, it required a little help from the internet – but not a whole lot of effort. I searched the internet for a guide to writing a dissertation and found a blog titled the Ultimate Guide To Writing A Dissertation . What I found in that blog, fits the title perfectly – it was indeed the ultimate guide – one that cleared all my confusion.
