    So just doing an essay where im needing to find information from sources such as books, journals (printed and online) ,market research reports, websites and more.

    Each one includes me having to fully reference an example.. and it just crossed my mind, would I ever need to know (or be expected to know) how to fully reference all these off by heart?

    Not that it may be a problem, it may be quite easy to learn how to reference a lot of it.. but its just a general question =]

    I doubt it but you'd probably be expected to know how to reference different kinds of sources without mistakes (which is what we got told this year for final year).

    Just use word to do the referencing automatically
