QUESTION
Is it ok to include an AS textbook as a reference for a university essay?
Hey!

I’m in my first year and I have an essay to write, its my first essay and its due in on thursday. ive done some of it but im stuck for references, i dont know what to use so was wondering if its ok to use my AS textbook as a reference? along with the core textbook for the subject? also how many references should i be using for a 1000 word, first year essay?

i would appreciate it if someone would get back me 🙂
thank you! 🙂

ANSWER
I doesn’t matter what your references are, as long as you insert them.
I mean, my reference could be my grandparents, or even a local magazine. Just make sure you get the references in.
And, no matter how long your essay is, you could have only used on reference, so it doesn’t matter how many references you have.

For example, I had a 1000 word essay fro French, and for my reference, I put: “national geography book”, which is where i got all my content + stats from.

Just remember, References are just what you used for information, they don’t have to be numerous, as long as you insert them where asked!

Hope I helped.
GoodLuck!
