Using websites can be tricky. Ask these questions to get a sense for whether the website is reliable:

**Ask****who is responsible for the information.**

Are they qualified to teach you? Why are they providing this information? Does someone take credit for the information by name? Can you contact them if you have questions?**Ask****whether the information is objective**.

Does it present both sides of an issue? Is it designed to persuade you? Does anything about the information seem fishy?**Ask how current the information is**.

Is the site dated? Has it been updated recently enough to provide good information? Are there old or out of date links?
