Essay Tip

When your writing an essay on a subject such as, I dunno, Thomas Cromwell and the English Reformation, don't just grab as many books as you can and look up Thomas Cromwell in the index and write down a lot of quotes. You'll get to a day before the assignment is due and know a whole bunch of disconnected things about Thomas Cromwell and nothing about the English Reformation.

Argh!!!

another tip.

When writing down disconnected quotes, remember to write down page numbers and other reference details.

Otherwise, there is a fun guessing game to be had when doing the final formatting.
