  3. Websites: 8 items
    You may find these websites useful for this course:
    1. There is an enormous amount of information on the internet, which can be invaluable in giving you up to date information, statistics and breaking news. However, the internet must always be used with care. Do ensure that any information you use from websites comes from an official and reliable source. Bear in mind that anyone can set up a website on the internet, and sites such as Wikipedia are built up by the individuals who choose to post on it. There have been notable cases of inaccuracy and misreporting on websites. For this reason, only use sites that you feel confident are reliable (such as government websites). You must also be aware that you can commit plagiarism from a website in just the same way as from a textbook – always cite your sources, whether text or web-based.
