Book give-away at the end of this article!!!!!
I just finished reading The College Student's Guide to Writing a Great Research Paper: 101 Easy Tips & Tricks to Make Your Work Stand Out by Erika Eby about 2 AM. This is going to sound a little nerdy but . . . it was a really great read. I write. Eby offers advice on writing. It is the same as my husband reading a book on cars.
The book is geared to the college student but I say why wait until college. I think this book is appropriate for seniors in high school with important projects to complete. I also think all writers could profit from reading this book. I learned several new ideas which I plan on incorporating into my own writing including holding the pages upside down to check for formatting errors. I have never heard of that before.
Eby breaks the whole process down to simple steps by step instructions with lots of advice and lots of examples. I am a person who needs lots of examples. It is easy to read.
I recommend this book.
I would like to gift this book to someone. Leave me a comment and let me know what you or your student is studying this year. I know this book will help them have a very successful year at school. Start commenting . . .
