Books are generally used before Computer was invented. During the early periods, it serves as a main form of giving entertainment, novels, making love stories, articles and particularly on providing information. As we look back on the older generation, whenever they have an assignment or project to accomplish they have to go to school library after class and explore every corner to find an appropriate book that will answer the certain questions and if they find out that the data they have was inadequate, they will find another book and search again. It may be a tiring and time-consuming enough that research yet they’ll go home with a bunch of knowledge. (PD)

As we go through the latest era, modern technology had become a great necessity of an individual. It could provide us things in an instant. Data’s are almost a few key up and clicks away. It will only take approximately thirty minutes or even shorter depending on the intensity of your research. Even if entertaining yourself, you just have to type the websites you want and it will be there in a matter of seconds. Fast every blink of your eye, everything you need will also blinks out on the monitor.

As the year passes by, Technology fastens the way of living. As you read this thesis, you will know the number of students who are satisfied with the fastest way of resolving their learning issues and who are still intact to the traditional way of getting information.
