This the they type of book that could benefit every student. The skills outlined in the book provide the foundation on which to begin college level reasearch and writing. An easy to use reference guide at your finger tips as you continue your educational journey. A great gift for someone heading off to college.
I wish I had a book like this during my high school and college years! As someone who has been out of school for 7 years and considering returning, this will help me immensely! Not only is it an excellent guide and easy to follow, (no endless jargon to weed through to get to "the good stuff") but she actually cheers you on! She encourges you and makes you feel confident and motivated. Some how-to's make you feel inferior and have a somewhat condescending tone. Not this one! One word; Empowered!! I'm also purchasing it for my friends who are teachers to hopefully inspire and encourage students to feel as empowered as I did. Thanks for this!
This book is extremely helpful. I just finished my first year at UCSC and I really wish I had this book. The book presents useful steps and strategies to write a strong research paper. The tips for constructing and organizing your ideas are amazing. I will definitely be using this book and these tips as long as I have to write research papers.
I wish this was created earlier!!. A very helpful and easy to understand book about how to effectively research and write a paper. I just wish that I had something like this when I was at CSUEB. It would have lead to a lot less hair being pulled out.
