Lester's "Writing Research Papers" is still the standard reference tool for university students and high school students who have to write research papers. It also provides an excellent rubric for developing and organizing any type of essay, not just research papers. I first encountered this book as an undergraduate in it's fourth edition. I had previously used Coyle and similar books as required resources. Comparatively, Lester wins hand down because it is concise with good examples. Many editions later, in the world of electronic communications, Lester is still relevant as it has been updated to provide an accepted standard for citing electronic reference and Web sources. I have had to purchase three additional copies since my first, one for each of my sons. In fact I really need to get the most recent edition for my own use since my youngest will taking his copy with him when he heads off to college. This is a must have reference tool for any serious student and a good resource for the professional.

This was in good condition for a used book, I am glad I purchased it, and it was far cheaper than the actual school website.

Fortunately, Amazon accepted the return and swiftly refunded my money.
I was highly disappointed as the research guide I received was published in 1971 which makes the style guides useless. The one on the photo is the one I wanted and it was published after 2009- when the APA and MLA guidelines were updated.
