You know how it goes – too many assignments, so little time. There are not enough hours in the day to finish working on tasks that are due in a short while. I know, not an original reason, but it rings true to many students. I’m sure of it.
And as with all these stories, in the end, I’ve succumbed to using an academic writing service.
This is a short overview of my experience with an online service named “Top Essay Writing.”
I’ve ordered a book review on “Frank Herbert’s Dune” from this essay writing service. Here are my overall impressions.
Appearance and Assurances
There is plenty of information provided on the main page of the service, but I felt that the said information was poorly distributed – just a massive wall of text, but whatever. The main body of the website looks almost amateurish, as well. It didn’t inspire confidence.
TopEssayWriting offers a big selection of services to students. Namely term paper writing, research papers, coursework, essays, dissertations (and dissertation proposals), editing, proofreading, reviews and reports. There are plenty others I have failed to mention, but you get the idea.
On top of that, the site offers some nice free features:
- Unlimited amendments
- Free bibliography pages
- Free title pages
- Free formatting in a variety of styles
- Completely unique papers with no traces of plagiarism
- Money back guarantee
Essay writing prices take into account the urgency of order, its size, and the academic level. There seemed to be no promo codes on offer and the discount system was accumulative. It was possible to get a 5% discount only after 5 orders.
But there’s a discount of 15% for first-time orders. In short, the total for my essay was around $50. Not exactly affordable.
Placing an order is quite easy. There have been numerous customization options on form, as should be expected: page count, number of references, referencing styles, subjects and types of document and other assorted variables.
Deadline selection is very impressive – beginning with 6 and 8 hours, I could go up to 14 days. Quite a nice range, if you ask me.
There are 5 levels of difficulty:
- High school
- All 4 years of college
Before employing the services of this writing company, I decided to gauge their performance by reading user reviews. A couple of aggregation sites provided reviews on this service. One aggregation site was full of overwhelmingly positive reviews, while others were somewhat in the mid-range, taking more of a neutral stance.
At the time I haven’t put much thought in it and merely expected the service to be quite good and professional.
There’s is a support hot line listed on the main page and live chat seems to be absent altogether. Not having live chat included on the site seemed like a glaring oversight.
It is also possible to reach the customer support team by mail.
Now Let’s Move On The Writers
Not much information is given on writers, apart from a couple of cliché remarks, that is.
They are supposed to be native English speakers, with numerous assignments behind their back and possessing the required work ethic.
There were a couple of samples, and they seemed fine.
You might have guessed where this is going. And yes, it was not what I expected. Not even close to high quality. There have been too many poorly worded phrases. I mean, what the hell? Is that what passes for academic content?
My jaw hit the floor the first time I saw that report. Not because of it being amazing, mind you. Immediately, I requested rewrites but it hasn’t changed much. As if it should, there’s isn’t a high enough number of revisions that would help this awful mess of symbols. It still was an incomprehensible mess of scatterbrained ideas (most likely borrowed from google and paraphrased in the worst way possible) and horrid grammar. I decided not to ask for amendments and cut my losses.
Be wary when you buy from them. The site has all the prerequisites of a scam one, don’t be like me and give them the benefit of the doubt. Explore different options, they’re much more likely not to end in a disaster.
Summing up the review of TopEssayWriting.org we would recommend you to try a trustful one
