by profs.
By GERRY LINS
Many professors are forced to give
multiple-choice testa because college
undergraduates can't write term
papers.
That is the contention of two
Michigan State University economics
professors who recently completed a
book about writing term papers, those
end-of-semester bears that almost
always mean an agonizing all-nighter.
"THIS IS VERY much a beginner's
book - for a student with little ex-
perience writing term papers," ex-
plained MSU economist Lawrence Of-
ficer, who, along with fellow economist
Daniel Saks and Lansing State College
publications coordinator Judith Saks,
has written So You Have to Write an
Economics Term Paper.
The pocket-size volume contains
twelve chapters including tips on
researching and handling information,
and seven economics papers that
previously appeared in the MSU
Economist.
"Only the second half of the book is
specific to economics. The first half is
basically a guide to using the library, a
'how-to' type of approach. Although it
may be best for economics students, we
feel its general information can be used
by all beginners," Officer said.
ALTHOUGH THERE are numerous
other books about writing term papers
already available, Officer said, "most
other books of this type refer to the
graduate level and these tend to be very
dry - they are written as reference
books rather than as 'how-to' books."
Officer found that many students,
having had little experience writing
term-papers, resort to plagiarism and
last-minute writing. Hence, he feels,
