Allthrough the learning process, I have gained new knowledge on how toapproach various elements of a thesis. However, literature reviewhas been the main center of attention. To begin with, I thought thatconducting literature review was a simple task that encompasses quickreviews of what other scholars have done in the area of concern.Nonetheless, from my experience in the last eight weeks, it hasbecome all too evident that literature review covers various aspectsthat help build a solid and relevant argument when preparing aresearch paper.

Icannot state conclusively that I have mastered all the importantfeatures of the literature reviews, but I can state that I haveacquired an in-depth knowledge on how to develop an effectualliterature review. I have learnt how to utilize tools available todevelop an exceptional chapter two and create a successfuldissertation.

Ihave gained valuable skills in the course of the eight weeks on howgather evidence by making the literature review a distinct part ofthe research paper. It has come to m knowledge that literature reviewdepends on the goals and purpose of the work. The work should becategorized based on key themes, which should be connected to theresearch topic.

Thissubject study arms the learner with skills and ability to criticallyscrutinize the available texts, both print and electronic thatrelates to the topic and research questions, in lieu of justsummarizing what has been located. It is evident that I may not haveacquired knowledge to the extent that I would consider myself as anexpert, but I have acquired expanded my knowledge and understandingon what constitute a excellent literature review and research paper.
