Tips for Better Researching by Louise Spilsbury

Tips for Better Researching teaches readers essential study skills to help them achieve their academic goals. It also gives advice on using these skills in everyday life to help readers gain valuable life skills and gain confidence in extra-curricular activities. Research is an important life skill. Being able to find and use relevant information helps you to make choices, reach conclusions, and communicate well. Tips for Better Researching starts with why we need research both in school work and our everyday lives. It then looks at sources of information, including printed material and the internet, and how to filter and choose appropriate information for your project. The Student's Toolbox equips young people with the tools needed to further their studies and help them develop vital life skills, from planning their timetables through to understanding how to deliver great speeches and presentations. From writing and researching through to planning and speaking, discover how to improve the skills you need to be a grade A student. Other titles in the Student's Toolbox series include: Tips for Better Researching, Tips for Better Writing, Tips for Better Public Speaking, and Tips for Better Planning.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
