Editorial Reviews

This is a guide that quickly enables you to write APA style. The book shows easy step by step style writing that is expected in APA format. A great help for newbies to APA style. I give it an(A)in reference-to this style of writing.
Amazon.com - Patrick D. Goonan
This is a great little book that summarizes the most important aspects of APA style. It is concise and easy to follow with just enough examples. I highly recommend you start here before buying the style guide which is more difficult to follow. If you do buy the style guide, get this book to work with and the larger more complicated books as a general reference.

Love this! Its easy to navigate and it is short and sweet. I'm so glad I chose this book.
Amazon.com - Darryl E. Cloud
I purchased this book as an afterthought, but after reading the first three of four pages, it became one of my best investments. Ms. Houghton takes the reader step by step in setting your computer up in APA Style, then the remainder of the book is a quick reference for some of the most frequently used information. It's compact and now rides in my briefcase all of the time. I have several other learners at my workplace and they now have order copies as well.

This is a great book! I bought the previous version for myself when I went back to school then bought 2 copies of this version for my sister & a friend--both of whom were returning to school and having a hard time with APA style writing. I very highly recommend this book over trying to decipher the APA manual.
