I am still in the process of reading this book, but I have found so far that it is the best book on the subject of the 4 that I've purchased. I am highlighting and marking pages. I do online research as part of my job, and I've found that other books on this subject haven't told me anything I don't already know. Not true of this book. It's been very helpful.

Effective research is one of the essentials for every writer or would-be writer. In MASTERING ONLINE RESEARCH, you can learn from a master researcher Maura Shaw. Whether you need some basics on using a bootlean operator to narrow your search (fully explained in the text) or need to learn advance search techniques, this comprehensive guide will give you the step-by-step insight.

It's too easy to neglect the range of possibilities with millions of pages of information online. This up-to-date resource will expand your research skills and help you save time while making effective use of the Internet. I learned a great deal from this book and plan to refer to it often in my own research and writing efforts. I recommend this well-done title.

This book will teach you many essentials to online research, all of which any researcher using the web as a primary tool for information should know. The book teaches the primary fundamentals we should know. What I've found and enjoy using this past year is a new service "Short Task" ([...] )to outsource various types of online research due to its low cost, ease of use and access to a massive workforce.
