Fantastic service!!

Excellent review of a paper that was deciding my grade. I appreciate both the edits and the feedback to increase my knowledge of correct APA formatting and accurate citations. I needed the paper returned quickly, and the team worked hard to make sure I had what I needed. I just got my grade back, A+. I would 100% use this service again, it was worth every penny!!!!!!

Scribbr is great, don't second guess!

Scribbr is great, I had a long break (9 years) between completing my undergraduate and my postgraduate degree, so was extremely rusty when it came to academic writing. The Scribbr team always give excellent feedback regarding your writing and areas where you can improve. I highly recommend!!
