Do I have to reference the same book twice or more at the end? Watch

    In my essay, I've used the same textbook multiple times. I've done in-text references all throughout. But when it comes to listing my references, do I include multiple references for the same book just with different page numbers, or it is one reference but listing the page numbers?

    For example, this is the reference for the book: Eysenck, M., Keane, M. (2005) Cognitive Psychology: A Student’s Handbook. 5th edition. East Sussex: Psychology Press Ltd.

    So would I just add all the page numbers I've used to one reference or would it be multiple references each for the different page numbers?

    You need page numbers in text but you don't need to in your reference list I think. If you submit your assignments electronically there's loads of tools online and built into word to do it for you so there's no need to do it yourself

    You're telling me Word will reference my sources for me? All this time I've been manually doing it and there's actually a way for it to be done automatically? Wow I feel like a dweeb

    Yes, if you use a references manager like Mendeley, you can install a word plugin. You simply press a button to insert an in-text citation (using the referencing system of your choice) and once you're doing, you press another button and it generates a full reference list.

    But to answer your question, no, you only reference the book once.
