Will be writing my master's thesis in a few months. I have never written a thesis yet though. I was unlucky enough not to be required to have a thesis during my undergrad years. Anybody know some good thesis writing guides?

I'm sure different suggestions could be offered depending on what your subject, or at least general category, is for your thesis. – MaQleod May 31 '11 at 5:29

Not sure if you're looking for content or format help, but if it's format-related, I'd strongly recommend the Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University. Actually, now that I double check, I see that it has a fairly comprehensive section on the entire writing process.

I like this resource because it's comprehensive, well written, easily searchable, frequently updated, and free. What more could you want?

Thanks :D I was referring to the style but the Purdue link has most of the things I want :) – R.K. Jun 4 '11 at 13:09
