Changing the title in "References"

I have just composed a class syllabus in LaTeX and would like to change the title of my Reference page from "References" to "Suggested Reading" or "Reading List". How do I go about doing that. This may be a simple question but I am new at this and on the steep incline of the LaTeX learning curve.

Depends on the class or package you are using, a minimal working example would give us just the information we need to help you.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I am using the article class nothing complex. Does that suffice in terms of information? Thanks for responding.
