    When I was first shown this link, I assumed it was to a book you have to purchase, that would sit on a shelf and collect dust. But it turns out that it's about an hours reading, in chapters, to those new to the subject that will enable a quick boost to the methods of searching for things using Google, the pitfalls and how to analyse quickly the links you are presented with. This information can cross over to any search engine really.

    We have a module at undergraduate level here in the UK on most degrees that cover researching and deciding whether a source is usable or just codswallop. It shows everybody has to be taught somehow, to get upto speed, or at least gain usable knowledge that will enable the user to succeed in finding the answers to their questions.
