What are some good tips for writing papers?
There’s nothing more annoying than getting a B- on a great paper because of your bibliography’s incorrect format. We all miss the days when we only had to cite three books and the teacher gave us a handout about proper citation format. Now you have to use a plethora of sources, and the citation format is totally different for fiction sources, non-fiction sources, magazine articles, newspaper articles, academic journals, web sites, primary sources, secondary sources, and so on. If the length of that sentence annoyed you, then flipping through a thick style guidebook may not be for you. The most common styles are MLA, Chicago, and APA. Make sure you ask your professor which one to use.
