This guide is a user-friendly tutorial for using the American Psychological Association's style guide. Written by author & professor Carol J. Amato, & geared for both undergraduate & graduate students, this easy-to-follow manual is packed with all the essential information any student needs to use the APA in a report, thesis, dissertation, or project. It is also designed as a guide for faculty who are teaching students this particular style. THE WORLD'S EASIEST GUIDE TO USING THE APA provides step-by-step instructions with detailed illustrations for setting up pages; placing graphics; formatting frontis material, appendices, & mathematical & statistical material; using seriation & abbreviations; documenting sources in the text; & creating a bibliography or list of references. "It was frustrating to see students struggle with the existing manual for the APA," says Ms. Amato, who teaches communications courses at the University of Phoenix's Southern California campus. "Writing a report or project is formidable enough without having to tackle the complexities of the APA. Style guides just shouldn't be so difficult to use. I wrote The GUIDE to combat this problem." Available in perfect bound edition (0-9643853-5-X) or spiral bound edition (0-9643853-1-4). Order from Stargazer Publishing Co., P.O.

Decent enough guide for APA. Easier to use than Perdue OWL, but still somewhat awkward. Citation formats for various information sources could have been more creatively approached. Read full review
