D1- Evaluate the Three Resources in Terms of Validity
495 Words2 Pages
Most websites are really valid/suitable mainly as some are reliable, especially certain websites like the NHS website. However there are some websites that are totally invalid, an example of this would be Wikipedia. People can go online and edit this website therefore everything you read may not be from a reliable source. The good websites such as the NHS are quite up to date and include really good information and a number of case studies. Websites are really easy to use and contain a variety of information, such as pictures, tables and diagrams/graphs. Websites can be really inviting, they can be colourful, this is better than a website looking really dull and boring as nobody would want to read the information there. Books are a suitable resource too as they are reliable. Books are reliable as they have to be checked by a number of agents before they get published therefore there won't be anything made up in there. Books are also a good resource as they include case studies and real life situations. Books also include a lot of information as books can be hundreds of pages long. Books contain a blurb on the back so if you're not sure that the book you have picked is relevant to what you need/want it for then you can read on the back to check. You can get almost any book you're looking for at your local library so you don't have to pay to read them. Newspapers are a good resource to use as they are really up to date as they are issued every week, they're probably the most up to date source you can find. They are also really suitable as they include real articles from people telling you about their own personal experience and they include quotes that you can use in your work. Newspapers are not as long as books though and there may only be a page on what you are most interested in. They don't cost much money to buy either so that's another advantage.
