TOEFL Essay Topic 1066 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is better to use printed material such as books and articles to do research than it is to use the internet. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Printed material is better
Some people may say that books or articles are better material for you than internet. However, I strongly believe that internet is better for you than the printed material such as book and articles.
First of all, to search the article on internet can save your time to search more than does the printed material. You can search the required information witin few seconds, while you need several minutes to find the suitable books. When I was first grade of university student, for example, I had always gone to University library to find the books, which contained the required information for my report. At the library, however, I spent almost 30 minutes to find my books. When I got to second grade of University, I finally noticed that it consumed the time to find the books at the library, because I found that google, one of the most famous internet search engine in the world, quickly supplemented the information I required. When I wrote about the report of macro economy, only 5 or 10 minutes allowed me to find the required information on google. This case clearly shows that how you can save the time to search what you want to know on the internet.
Second, there are unlimited article or information available at the internet, the things which printed material provides cannot do. The library of my university was not so big, and thus, I was sometimes frustrated by the lack of required books in my library. Especially, the foreign articles or books were ultimately dearth. After I switched to use internet as a resorce for my report, my frustration was virtually evaporated. Especially to search the foreign article, google was highly useful for me. Almost there is an unlimited articles I could reach in internet, while there was no adequate amounts of foreign books in my library. My experience vividly illustrated that the internet is highly useful tools to reach the thuosands of articles or information more than the printed material.
In conclusion, according to the reasons I mentioned above, I definitely disagree with the statement; to use printed material is better for you more than the internet.
