How to Prevent Plagiarism
Quoting and Paraphrasing
Some sites do try to dodge the cybercheating label by claiming to provide "sample essays" that can function as "models" for students' own creations. At the same time, these sites offer tips on how to cheat on an exam as well as opportunities for students to order papers custom-made to suit specific thesis and/or length requirements.
Most of the free papers offered are donated by other student users. Many of these papers are of mediocre quality at best so that papers are not always easily recognized as plagiarized.
Here is a list of just a few of the more popular cheat sites:
