I am a 49 yr old who has decided to go back to College and get her Bachelor's Degree but I seem to be having a problem writing essay papers. A lot has changed since I attended College over 25 yrs ago, so any additional help is always welcomed. Thank you for the great lesson here. It has helped me out and I will be reviewing this lesson again for future classes.
David Taylor
As a 49-year-old, you have considerable advantages over traditional-aged students--life experience, wisdom, motivation. Adult students always shine in the traditional classroom.

Hi, Marianne--So glad that you found it helpful. Remember that this are just basic formulas and that you are free to add your own flair. The key is logical structure, no matter the flair. Good luck!
