'This is a highly useful little book in a very user-friendly and engaging format... The book clearly outlines various referencing styles, provides clear and visually pleasing guides to exactly how academic referencing works, and how it would look on the page... The complex and important issue of plagiarism is very clearly discussed, and the way that anti-plagiarism software works is made very clear. There's an impeccable set of examples and resources in the back of the book, giving it a punch beyond its hundred and 12 pages!' - Amazon review

Format: Paperback
This is a highly useful little book in a very user-friendly and engaging format. Don't be fooled by its size: it manages to pack in a great deal of useful and pertinent information in a very small space. A short trawl through the education pages of the newspapers and media will reveal how much concerns being expressed about plagiarism and poor referencing: badly referenced academic essays can not only score poorly in terms of marking, but can also lead to accusations of plagiarism if you're not careful.

The book clearly outlines various referencing styles, provides clear and visually pleasing guides to exactly how academic referencing works, and how it would look on the page. Helpfully, the book has chapters such as "Write with confidence" that point towards skills that would develop a mature writing. The complex and important issue of plagiarism is very clearly discussed, and the way that anti-plagiarism software works is made very clear. There's an impeccable set of examples and resources in the back of the book, giving it a punch beyond its hundred and 12 pages!

Buy the set for any friend or child heading off to university, or even taking A levels, to develop those key study habits and avoid tears years later!

I have recently started my postgraduate study and was totally apprehensive of the whole world of referencing. This book eased me into the concept and techniques in a gentle, non-threatening manner. It is amazing what you can learn from a little book in a few sittings. Everything is to the point and given in bite-sized chunks. There is a helpful index along with a visual map of approaching your term paper properly. I appreciate everything about this book and I'm so happy I bought it early-on in my studies. Although my university has provided online literature on referencing, plagiarism etc, holding this little book is a joy itself and easier than logging into your computer and reading things online.
If you are student, you must have this on your shelf. Go get one.

Do not be disheartened when this book arrives and you see how small it is, it offers a wealth of information in my personal opinion everything you need to know about this subject. The main reason I ordered this book was because with my studies the only observation my tutor made was about my referencing. I cannot say how much this book has helped me and it is so easy to understand. I recommend this book to anyone who needs any assistance from how to reference through to what to reference and even good information on how to find the sources you may need, any student studying at any level and on any course will benefit from this book.

I bought this book a while ago but didn't need it until very recently, when I had to write my first essay. It's written quite simply and gets to the point in explaining the whole referencing business; not just how but why it's necessary in academic writing, with illustrations and tips and all whatnot. Glad I bought it. I also bought the Palgrave referencing guide to go with it.

This book helped me a lot with referencing things that weren't straightforward to reference. I even got complimented on my referencing by a tutor. Result!
