Essential tools while in high school/college for citing: NoodleTools and EasyBib Both sites cite stuff for you and just ask you to input easy info, like they will ask “author’s name”, and you just type it in.
You can thank me later :)

Yes. Use Easy Bib. I have been using it for college papers for over three years now

endnote x2 – keeps a database of your references then can reformat your citations in your word document on the fly. You might get a nice discount being a student too.

If you use Word 2007 there is also a complete citations feature built in. You can find it under the References => Citations & Bibliography Tab. I find it really useful because you just have to enter your information once and then it’s all set up. All you do is click for in-text citations; it even automatically does a complete bibliography for you!
