Reviews - What do customers think about Research Papers for Dummies?

Best Resource Book for Teaching Research Paper Writing  Feb 8, 2008
Research Papers for Dummies
I'm using this book to teach the subject to high school seniors. It is my favorite among many books on the subject. G. Woods has written a clever, clear, and complete book on a subject that can be dry, frustrating, and complex. I've encouraged my students to get their own copy and take it with them to college.
 
Research Papers for Dummies  Feb 6, 2007
Great, this is very helpful for my College Course; it is a refresher for me
 
the book is ok  Jan 12, 2007
the book gives great information, but no solid examples for you to go by. it's a great read, but I learn better from seeing what what I am reading. I owuld not buy this book again.
 
A Formula That Works!  Feb 3, 2004
Research Papers for Dummies could easily be called "Recipes for Research" because the same process is followed in every research production. You really can't find a simpler guide on the market that does justice to the important business of writing effective and intelligible research papers.

Of course finding the answers in short order is sometimes the key problem and I've found The Practical Pundit to be a quick solution to gathering my material prior to sitting down to order and write.
