Lester’s “Writing Research Papers” is still the standard reference tool for university students and high school students who have to write research papers. It also provides an excellent rubric for developing and organizing any type of essay, not just research papers. I first encountered this book as an undergraduate in it’s fourth edition. I had previously used Coyle and similar books as required resources. Comparatively, Lester wins hand down because it is concise with good examples. Many editions later, in the world of electronic communications, Lester is still relevant as it has been updated to provide an accepted standard for citing electronic reference and Web sources. I have had to purchase three additional copies since my first, one for each of my sons. In fact I really need to get the most recent edition for my own use since my youngest will taking his copy with him when he heads off to college. This is a must have reference tool for any serious student and a good resource for the professional.

I ordered this book thinking I needed to take this class, however I got word that one of my transfer classes covered it and I no longer have to take it. But I love the book. I needed this to help in some week areas I have in writing and citing papers so I decided to keep it. This book came in great condition and within the due date.
