Introductory Quick Quiz

A quiz . You will be provided with a game code in the teaching session

Below are a list of resources useful across all the modules I teach. More detailed lists will, in time, become available. I tend not to teach from books favouring online resources, but for now choose one or two of the core books below and have a flick through. If they appeal to you, buy a copy. There is nothing more useless than a text book that remains in pristine condition unopened on the shelves.

RESEARCH

https://www.refworks.com/refworks2/default.aspx?r=authentication::init 

This is a very useful online resource for keeping and formatting your references. You will need your university ID and pw to access it. Once you have access you can choose to download WriteNCite which allows you to drop citations into Word and format a bibliography and RefGrab which is a Firefox plugin that allows you to grab references from website and pass them through to your RefWorks database automatically. There are OS issues for Mac users which may involve you installing a legacy version of Java. Brunel University have kindly provided the information you need to get it working http://libanswers.brunel.ac.uk/faq/37161 – let me know if you are having issues with RefWorks installation
