It is hard to know exactly what to think when one finds what might appear to be careless mistakes in a book. In the first few pages I noted an unusual entry, "(e)ventually, the person will get their 'cumuppins'". I suspect the authors meant "comeuppance". I do not think that they were quoting another source which contained this unusual word.

Just a few pages later the authors mention the president of Duke University using her presidential "bully pit" to make an announcement concerning Duke's problem with student cheating. I am not sure, but I suspect that the authors meant "bully pulpit". I have not visited Duke recently so I suppose it might be possible that the president has a bully pit, though why this would be a good spot for such an announcement I cannot speculate.

It is really hard to know what to make of these errors. The first might be a speech-to-text transcription error, but I would have thought that even casual proof reading would catch this. The second error certainly suggests casual proof reading, but it also suggests that the authors intended to use this incorrect phrase. I am surprised that authors were not more familiar with the concept of "bully pulpit". Perhaps neither of these errors were made by the authors but were introduced during an indifferent proof reading.

When I encounter errors this obvious and this casual in the first few pages I wonder if a similar lack of care will be evidenced in the research or the analysis or the synthesis.

I would really like to read this book, but somehow I can't get beyond these mistakes. If, as a casual reader, I notice these errors, what errors would a serious student find?

Overall the book is quite good and quite comprehensive. I read it for a research project for graduate school and it summarizes the currently literature quite effectively. My favorite characteristic of the book is the way the authors chose to include excerpts from news articles or anecdotes from their respective univeristies to illustrate the points they were making. The last chapter about seeing the good in cheating was a stretch, but other than that the book was exceptional for anyone concerned about the rising tide of cheating in our nation's schools. I highly recommend it for all educators, especially administrators.

Finally, a really good book about one of the biggest issues in education today -- cheating.
With the technology that kids have available to them today and a culture that seems to encourage getting ahead at any cost, this book addresses all the major issues in clear prose, with meaningful guidelines to deter and prevent cheating. The book covers cheating across the entire academic spectrum from elementary school through college and university years. I was attracted to this book because I read that the authors have over thirty years of research in this field, and I was curious to see what the experts say. One of the authors, Tricia Bertram Gallant, has a very informative blog, that is worth checking out [...]
I'm surprised that more attention isn't being paid to cheating. The authors explain why cheating is a "deep, dark secret" in education and how in some cases educators contribute to the problem. I also liked how the book looks at the larger societal issues and how it discusses short and long term deterrants to cheating. This book is a must read for any parent, educator, school administrator, and anyone interested in this subject. The authors are obvious experts on the issue and the book is an easy read, full of suggestions, insights, and recommendations for attacking this problem. It's a call for integrity and honesty inside (and outside) the classroom. This is the kind of book that should be getting more attention (Oprah where are you?).

The authors of "Cheating in School" have gathered the research on student cheating and present it clearly and thoroughly. They show that cheating is endemic to education yet go on to make the case that it is now epidemic. More than that, it is "the most critical problem facing education today." This is not just an individual corruption, but a corruption of institutions, a buy-in to the process by parents, teachers, educators, universities, scholarship foundations and loan officers. This is the "deep, dark secret" that has not yet been addressed, and which threatens foundations of our society--it is international. Both short and long-term deterrents and strategies for addressing the problem are presented, and the final chapter is challenging and optimistic--finding the good in student cheating. The text is for both the layperson and the educator and social scientist, and has a good supply of quotes throughout that are captivating, even when read without the supporting literature. A must-read for those who have followed the studies, news, and Donald McCabe's lifelong work, now presented and supported in a historical context.

"Cheating in School" is an outstanding book for those who are dedicated to and invested in the value of education. These authors have keenly articulated the problem of academic dishonesty that faces all levels of schooling. After clearly communicating the pervasiveness of cheating, the authors open the readers' eyes to the creative and surprising practices students use to cheat. With informed and practical solutions, the authors provide techniques for addressing the problem in both the short-term (immediate) and long-term. The solutions offered are not just a quick fix so parents, teachers, and administrators can turn a blind eye; rather, the authors provide a "call to action" giving insight into how to rally the community to create a culture of integrity. This very readable book provides the opportunity to engage in conversations that remind us that learning, not cheating, is at the heart of education.
