Text Excerpt When students first come to college writing papers is often one of the biggest challenges they will face. The step up from writing at a high school level acts as a difficult transition. In his satire, “How to Write an ‘A’ Paper” Koji Frahm suggests that there are many common errors that college writers make. Frahm hints that if a writer eliminates these common errors their writing will improve significantly.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
