    Preparing a quality research paper requires the "marriage" of both reading and organizational skills. Written as an at-home companion for students, this guide maintains that the best way to improve a student's writing is to strengthen these skills. Breaking the actual task of research writing down into manageable chunks, coverage is thorough and readable (short sections with bullet points) and written directly to the student with a touch of humor and a solid dose of reality. From preparing a workable time schedule to library and internet research to endnotes and parenthetical notes to the nitty-gritty of reworking your paper, the bases are all covered; and then, just for good measure, how to adapt these skills to oral presentations and essay tests. The author (study skills "guru," Roy Fry) has a strong appreciation of the value of internet research and computer skills in general along with good suggestions for mastering them. A quick chapter at the close of the book addresses the special challenges that students with ADD face as they tackle research writing along with some practical tips and suggestions. 130 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    So your little cousin Joey challenged you to a friendly game of chess, and promptly wiped you off the board in ten minutes flat. How did he do it? Well, he probably just finished reading Learn Chess Quick. Even if you've never picked up a rook in your life, if you read this book, you'll learn how to play chess very quickly. The writing is straightforward and fun to read, along with uncomplicated diagrams and quirky cartoons. Once you get the hang of the basics, you'll eagerly throw yourself headlong into mastering some nifty tricks that'll help you defeat little Joey next time. Be aware: the word "hell" is used at least twice (once for the location, once as a shocker), and there is occasionally some innuendo/violence in the cartoon drawings. 142 pgs., pb. – Chad

    This book takes an intimidating topic - writing a research paper - and breaks it down into a manageable, even fun, step-by-step process. Each chapter focuses on one area or task in the writing process, and provides plenty of strategies, practice, examples and tips for handling that section smoothly. The chapters walk students through finding a topic, locating resources, researching that topic, writing bibliography cards, taking notes, outlining their paper, writing the first draft, revising and editing the draft into the final copy, writing the bibliography and presenting the final paper. The text is filled with clear instructions, visual examples, and helpful hints. Reproducible student activity sheets are also scattered throughout the book, providing the student small-scale practice before they apply the skills to their own research paper. At the end of the book you'll find evaluation rubrics and answers to the activities found throughout the book. Don't let the thought of a research paper overwhelm you any longer - use the steps and techniques in this book to turn them into a breeze. ~ Steph

    Essay writing fears will be a thing of the past with this text reference on CD-ROM. The beginning is always a good place to start, and Steven Stern uses this exact technique as he teaches us all about essays. The very first chapter goes over exactly what an essay is, reading and writing essays, the purposes for essays (believe it or not, their purpose is not to frustrate or torture students), and the different parts of an essay. The guide progresses at a good pace, not dilly-dallying around on things that aren't helpful, but getting straight to the point in a logical and comprehensive way. There are several topics to be worked through at the pace of the student, covering what makes a readable essay, the steps to writing an essay (the writing process), how to get started, shaping the essay, going from the plan to essay, completing and polishing an essay, answering essay-test questions, and the parts of a whole (showing how the writer ties all the paragraphs together). There are activities throughout the text to cement the principles in the student's mind. Answers are not provided, as they will differ between students. This quick reference is a worthwhile tool both for those just learning to write and for those who want to polish up on their techniques and methods of essay writing. ~ Zach

    Step one: buy this book. Step two: choose a subject. See, you are already on your way.Writing a research paper can be a daunting task. It's important to break it into smaller steps, and that is where this book can help you. This is the 7th edition, so they must be doing something right. I particularly liked the advice about reading general articles and developing a temporary outline. You are not committing to topic immediately. Sometimes in our general reading, we find a different angle to pursue. There is very specific information on developing a temporary bibliography and editing it for your final product. The method is realistic and simple to follow for a student guiding themselves. ~ Sara

    Okay, so maybe you've put off actually tackling a "real" research paper. Unlike other writing assignments, this isn't just about how well you can write, it's also about how effective your research and organizational skills are. Also, research papers are often larger assignments than the average paper, both in size and grade. Help is on the way! This step-by-step guide leads you through the entire process. There are twelve chapters in all, each covering a different, crucial step of the research paper. These include choosing a topic and getting organized, selecting the resources and materials, writing the bibliography cards, taking notes, writing the preliminary outline, documenting your sources, writing the first draft, writing the final outline, revising and rewriting the first draft, writing or typing the final paper, completing the finishing touches, and even evaluating the research paper. The book is written in a friendly, knowledgeable tone, packed with instructions, examples, and even reproducible worksheets to help students write a great research paper. 95 pgs.
