    Hi I struggle with finding text in the book to reference and how to put it in the essay to show understanding of what I've written. Like I find myself choosing bad quotes or the worst pieces of quotes from a book to try to expand on and so-forth..

    You shouldn't really be using quotes. Try to summarise in your own words. And if you're doing a science subject, try not to reference from books but from journal articles

    I don't get it though, can you give me an example and by quotes I mean the authors words and to expand on it? That's what I do but I feel I suck at it. I can't summarise everything in my words though without referencing?
