This piece of software can help them to cope by giving them valuable insights in how to plan an assignment, search for information, critically evaluate, present and reference that information. It also helps students to plan their time and the steps they need to follow to survive and produce their first piece of assessed work.


A comprehensive guide to referencing information using the main styles used by the university.  It gives many examples to illustrate how to cite and reference information.
