I have found this text to be really helpful for students doing research papers. Most students just starting college don't know the difference between a database and the internet let alone a good vs bad internet site. This book effectively shows how to tell what you're looking at and how to cite online sources. I highly recommend it. You can't do better for the money!Was this review helpful?
