The "first printing" of the APA Publication manual has mistakes. If you purchased a first printing of the 6th ed. APA manual, the APA said it will replace them free of charge up until Dec. 15th, 2009. Afterwards, you are out of luck. Call the APA at (800) 374-2721 or (...

After you answer a few questions, you will be sent an e-mail with a free return shipping label and a form to be included with your return.

    Be warned--many errors in first printing!

    I just received my copy. As a psychology professor, this text is required for my bookshelf--the same is true for students in this field. However, I was upset to learn that APA has already issued 7 typewritten pages of corrections to this manual, and they will not exchange the first printing for a newer print. This is a resource that you will use for years! Wait to purchase until the kinks have been ironed out and they are on a second or third printing of the manual!

    I am also disappointed that they do not clearly delineate the changes from the 5th edition. It looks to me that there are few important changes (2 spaces between sentences, etc.). Save your money for at least a few more months!

    This is a prescribed text for one of my courses. The irony is that the course is titled Education Technology for Administrators, but we were asked to buy a text book. This should have been available on line especially since it is a collection of frameworks for writing a paper for the most part. APA ought to make these papers available on line. Just another money making racket!
