i usually just put 3 big books about the subject and just the subject (not encyclopedias). the teacher thinks that i got all my information from just 3 books, and its ok because since they're big they have lots of information on the matter.

theres also bibme.com which will do it for you if you just put in the website, or if the book is entered into their database. completely free by the way.
