Very useful pocket guide March 19, 2011
by
This textbook is well-organized and well-indexed. It includes brief discussions of writing a paper and avoiding plagiarism. There are lots of examples, clearly identified, and a couple of sample papers so you can see how everything should look. I recommend it for every student that needs to use APA style. It is a great reference guide. It is super-easy to navigate, even for those whose college days are long behind them.
