Every year, many Computer Science and IT students need to prepare themselves for their final year projects. This final project plays a great role in showing the efficiency of learning outcomes of modules that the students have taken during their studies. Once the time comes, a thousand questions arise: What kind of project should I do? What steps should I take? How should I prepare the project report? How should I present my project?

A useful guideline to start with. However, it is necessary to use the bibliography in order to have more details on each step which has briefly been explained in the book.
