    After buying other APA resources, this one was the most complete.  For someone like me who is not good with computers, this book made setting up a paper in APA really easy.  His website is really cool too.

    Wonderful resource for college students.  This book has walkthroughs for every major word processing software including Word 2011 and Word 2013.  I found the reference section helpful as Mr. Matkovich gives lots of examples of both references and in text citations!  Great book, I highly recommend.
