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.
