I have finally completed my little booklet “Top Ten Mistakes Students Make on Research Papers — and How to Avoid Them!” As both an undergrad and graduate professor, I’ve read scores (if not hundreds) of research papers. Some of them were, well, just awful, and reminded me of papers I had written during my years of education. Others were outstanding and needed to get published!
What makes the difference between the two kinds of research paper? There are many factors, of course, but one factor concerns grammar and form mistakes most of us make. I’ve discussed the Top Ten of these along with practical suggestions as to how to avoid them.
The first ten people that enter a comment on my blog (and provide me a mailing address) will receive a FREE COPY of “Top Ten Mistakes.” For those who wish to order a copy, a payment of $5 to our PayPal account (firstname.lastname@example.org) will get you one sent first class to the address you provide.

I have been anxiously awaiting for the release of this book. It sounds like a must have for me to make it through Graduate School.

I’m always looking forward for you comments and insights. This book sounds very helpful. Thanks for your insights and cartoons too. I miss the table tennis matches while I was in CIU. Greetings from Caracas, Venezuela

Rodney: How good to hear from you! I miss our matches as well. I have one undergrad who is quite proficient — and he gives me a good workout. How goes the work in Venezuela? Invite me to do some meetings sometime! Blessings. Dr. D.
