According to the APA website, the 1st printing of the Concise Rules has 'minor' typos. I have just gone through a tedious process, over about 3 hours, noting corrections for 'minor' typos in the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition, first printing. I ordered the Concise Rules but will return in to the sender, if it is a 1st printing. The APA web site states that the main errors are in the sample papers, in the Manual, and that the other errors are minor. There are multiple minor errors that are very tedious to deal with.

This book is great for someone who is familiar with APA, but if you are just learning, I would look for another book as this one can be difficult to navigate and lacks any visual examples.

I found this completely useless for writing papers and had to buy the APA Publication Manual. This is coming from a new graduate student who was trying to learn to write APA style. If that is your purpose for buying this manual, stick with the blue APA Publication Manual. I could find no use for this condensed version and it never had information that was relevant to writing my papers correctly.

I did think the size and spiral binding was kind of handy, if only the information inside was useful.

You are better off using univeristy-based APA style guides on the web. I own this book and have barely cracked it, as it is much easier to find the individual entry types on the web.

There are several reasons I love this reference guide:
1. It is spiral-bound, so I can leave it open at any page i wish without worrying it will close.
2. It is small and fits in my laprop case.
3. It literally lists every possible type of citation.

Although this book is a handy tool to have, it can be confusing as a guide. I really thought I would be getting more citation examples than offered. I was hoping for an in depth citation example for each type of source, and although I got numerous citation examples, I still felt the book was somewhat lacking. I should have purchased the more complete guide, but if you are looking for a handy quick reference tool, then this is great deal. I just didn't realize at the time of purchase. It also includes instructions on grammar and writing style as well as table headings and more. So from that aspect, I'm very satisfied. I would have rated this 5 stars, but I just didn't realize what I was buying. It is a good quick reference tool though.

This was a required book for one of my college classes. I have used several older versions of this manual, but this is the most recent version. In my opinion, this version is less clearly organized than older versions. While the information you need can be found, it can take more time than I think it should because of the way the book is put together.

Concise rules of APA style is more manageable in a physical sense, than the entire APA Publication Manual. It is also probably just as useful for most people, as the bigger more expensive Publication Manual. Speedy service from Amazon and good value - for all the Australian online shoppers out there.
