Instructions for writing the Literature Review of your Final year project

How to write a literature review for your final year thesis project

A long time ago I wrote an article on how to pass your final year thesis project, which several studentsfound helpful. In the same vein, this post deals with a particular aspect of the final year project: the literature review.Every year I see students doing projects I find students tend to ask the same questions about their literature review. Most common are:

  • How many papers should I read?
  • How long should the literature review be?
  • Should I read books, articles, or …?
  • Is it OK to reference websites such as Wikipedia?
