    Just got a quick question about referencing books. When I've used the same book, but information from different pages should I:

    a.) Have multiple references for the book, but with different pages
    b.) Put the entire page range I've used which wouldn't help anyone find the information as there'll be lots of pages inbetween
    c.) in the reference, list the pages I've used
    eg Name., Date, Title: Publisher, p. 4, 5, 6, 92

    d.) something else?

    Also, part of what I'm writing refers to named events which we have been told to reference. As the name is used throughout the core guidebook I was going to reference this; should I in that case cite the entire page range?

    Cheers
