Reviews - What do customers think about The Debatabase Book: A Must-Have Guide for Successful Debate?
Saved our debate May 7, 2007
If you're planning to compete in debate, a well rounded knowledge of stock issues is a must have. This book or the pro & cons book has the issues that many come up in a competition. It is a good idea to browse the book before an actual debate because the subject titles maybe a little confusing. There is no definitions so if you don't have at least a small understanding before hand this won't help during the 15 minute prep time but it will help to refresh your memory. In our debate I had to figure out if the WTO section in the book was under free trade or international relations and that took up more time than it should have.
Not a bad tool Jul 27, 2006
