5.0 out of 5 stars One of my best investments ... ever March 17, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as an afterthought, but after reading the first three of four pages, it bacame 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simplifies the Anguish of APA September 11, 2005
Format:Paperback
No one can ever rationalize the logic in using APA style in areas other than the Psychological Sciences. Yet there we are, those of use whose studies have little or nothing to do with this area of study. In this regard the APA The Easy Way is a godsend. It takes the pain of dealing with the APA Manual, cuts through the BS and tells you the "meat" of what you really need to know to conform to this style of writing. It could definitely use some more sample papers. It would help to make comprehending the style easier if you could see it used is someone's work. Additionally, it would help immensely if it quoted the page numbers in the actual APA Manual from where each area addressed was taken from. This would help just in case you are challenged to provide a specific reference from where you followed APA formatting. All-in-all a very simple and easy-to-use guide that helps take the sting out of writing APA style.

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. There are also many free online resources for APA style and some of them are excellent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really necessary January 30, 2007
Format:Paperback
I've used APA all through college and quite successfully. Now that I'm in my senior year this book was required for a class. The book is completely unnecessary. A simple google search of "APA format" will lead you to the Purdue University website that covers everything in this book and for free. There are so many websites available for assistance with APA that I wouldn't recommend bothering with a book.

This book was more user friendly than the APA Manual.

Bought both, but have only used the APA The Easy Way so far.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT buy! Not Accurate! June 23, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very familiar with APA 5th edition having used it for it's entire duration, so when the 6th edition arrived I thought I could save a couple of dollars by buying this book and simply learning the changes between the two.

This book does not accurately portray the 6th edition of APA, especially the header section. Even the sample paper at the end of the book shows it incorrectly. Unfortunately, I had to hear it from college professor that it was incorrect!!!!

The back of the book has this written: "However, this highly regarded manual is not specifically geared toward scholarly academic writing...especially college term papers."

WHY ELSE WOULD I NEED APA!?!?!?! Wish I could have read that before buying the book, so now my attempt as saving a couple of dollars was a complete waste of the entire purchase price. Also on the back: "Education is one of the best investments you will ever make...and our books maximize that investment!"
That either counters their previous statement, or is completely accurate in that your investment will be maximized with purhcases of their book because you will still have to buy the accurate books too.
Very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and Easy Reference for APA January 18, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Confused and going crazy trying to use APA style? Are you a high school or college student who struggles to get APA formatting correct in your papers? If you can't find the answers in the big APA style guide, this is the book for you!! As a college professor, I have recommended this book to all my students, especially undergraduates, who need to know just the basics of APA style. For about $10, you have all the info you need. Get this book!

I want to know too. I am reluctant to buy anything until I know. My professor advised waiting till Spring to buy the Publication Manual.
