Book Review: Writing A Great Research Paper

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 . . .

  1. My son attends an Early College High School-when he graduates from high school, he will also graduate with an Associates Degree. He would benefit from a book like this!
