Whatever your profession or avocation, NetResearch teaches you how to locate the information you need in the constantly changing online world.
Whether you're using the Net to research statistics for a report, to find free software, or to locate an old college roommate, it pays to locate online information rapidly. But the Net is a very big, disorganized place and it can be difficult to locate just the information you want, when you need it. In NetResearch, you'll learn effective search techniques that work with any Internet search programs, present or future, and will build intuition on how to succeed when searches fail. Throughout the book, the author offers quizzes to help you practice your own research skills or to use as a teaching tool to help others.
Covers the Internet, America Online, CompuServe, Microsoft Network, and Prodigy.
