This is a clear, to the point, and easy to follow guide to APA format. It cuts through all of the confusing information from the manual that isn't pertinent to student papers and focuses specifically on writing in APA style at the undergraduate level. It has 2 sample papers in the back for students to follow as well as an extensive section of citations, references, and avoiding plagiarism.

This book causes more problems for my students than it helps them. Much better to skip it and get a copy of the APA Publication Manual for less money than this one.
Well it looks like I'm finished with this one for the semester. This was a useful guide as I was new to using APA Style for papers. There were a few things that I had to lookup in different sources, just for more clarification. Overall, a very useful booklet to have if you're going to be writing a lot in APA style.

Not something I would suggest for a FUN read, but it is a very useful, simple explanation of APA style, which is of course more challenging than the ever-popular MLA Format.
Has useful information in how to use APA styler, however I can find this information on the internet for free, didn't have to buy the $50 dollar book (stupid class)
Not user-friendly at all. I would recommend a different source for APA documentation.
