  • I had to write a research paper for my film class. I did all the prior research (had to write about the film Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock) gathered all the sources and made an annotated bibliography etc etc. But then something happened and I really ran out of time. Then I found with a quick google search. Needless to say I really recommend it. I got great feedback on my essay and am really glad that I took this opportunity and ordered an essay instead of shoveling some paragraphs together into a pile of crap and submitting it.
