Will I be in trouble

Postby nini98 » Tue Jan 12, 2010 12:27 pm

I was doing my research bibliography and one of the sites I used is a site that writes essays so you don't have to. I judt googled my question and one of its essays had the info I needed will it be okay to use that info?

A website like that is not very reputable, so I would definitely try to find the information from a better source. Try starting on wikipedia and go down to the bottom of the related page to get some bibliography sources that might be better. Do some google searching with the key terms from that website and hopefully you can find another source.

If you are having trouble, explain the problem to your teacher and ask to see if you can use that website as a source. Good luck!

Not to be rude but, I would not use any wiki sites. Why? Well others have edit it and it may not be true. What I would do is use other search engines.Ex: fire fox, bing, e.c.t. Compare and find out what is the most accurate from the data. So that way you have more to go off of and show that it has been proven. :wink:
