Overview

This accessible and invaluable workbook-style reference guide will help your students smoothly make the transition from writing for composition classes to writing for psychology classes. In her Third Edition of Writing With Style, author Lenore T. Szuchman quickly and succinctly provides the basics of style presented by the Fifth Edition of the APA's Publication Manual. Dr. Szuchman's years of experience teaching writing-intensive courses give her an inside track on the trouble spots students often encounter when writing papers and dealing with APA style. Her students played a large part in tailoring this guide's exercises to ensure an effective learning experience. The unique workbook format offers both a quick reference to APA style and interactive exercises that give students a chance to practice what they've learned.

    Not a Good Reference Book

    I bought this book thinking it would give me some help writing a paper using the APA style. I was looking for references to formats, footnotes, and resource notation and was sadly disappointed. All there is in this book is some quick summaries and a lot of area provided for practicing some of the tips and techniques the author offers. Unfortunately, this book was of no help to me. I will be looking to return it.
