Remember also that your peers may be equally as busy as you are, and so the amount of time that they are willing to spend reading your work may not be what you need.
In addition, your peers are likely unfamiliar with the subject area you are studying.
Usually, these suggestions are simply that – suggestions.
Only you know the details of your specific topic area and you are the one that has done the research in this area.
As a result, they are not going to be able to provide advice on your research, but they may be a valuable resource as an outsider.
If there are areas of your dissertation that they do not understand, this may be a sign that you need to clarify these sections in some way.
If you are submitting electronically, there may be other things you need to consider that are technology-based.
These might include formatting of graphs and tables when converting to PDF, the inclusion of hyperlinks, and an interactive Table of Contents.
In this instance, you have to find alternative resources to ensure that you are making the most of your dissertation. Recognise however, that peers are generally at the same level as you are, so their comments may not be as valuable or appropriate as the ones you would receive from your tutor.
If you choose to have your peers read your work, make sure that any significant changes are carefully thought about prior to implementation.
