You suffer from information overload. You searched the Internet for information on a topic, but after hours of searching and not finding the right kind of information for your assignment topic, you gave up hope. Learning how to effectively search for information is an important skill to master. Applying proper search strategies will not only help you to find the best information, but will also save you time.
