5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect stress free APA papers! February 6, 2012
PERRLA for APA is a true blessing. After returning to school after 25 years, I was overwhelmed with the writing requirements. A classmate told me about PERRLA and I purchased it the same night. I must say that it was the best purchase I have ever made! It made writing a paper in APA format easy and stress free. I never had points taken off my papers for not having the correct format. Using PERRLA for APA made me successful at writing papers and added significantly to my graduating GPA of 3.962. I highly recommend this purchace to anyone attending college or required to write in APA format. It will lower your stress level significantly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perrla for APA January 28, 2012
For someone going back to college after a 30 year absence, PERRLA is a life saver. It is worth $1000's in stress reduction and a full head of hair! Thank you PERRLA for making the APA requirements easy to follow and simple to master, even for an old timer college student. It integrated perfectly with WORD and makes writing papers as simple as possible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money October 18, 2012
By BandDad
Microsoft Word already does all this for you. I find the Perrla way of adding references clunky and time consuming compared to the smooth flow of Microsoft Word. If you want to insert references go to the references tab. The hardest thing to do (and it is NOT hard at all) is to find the APA format templates. Click New --> Available Templates Pops Up ---> Click the Reports icon under office.com (scroll dooown) ---> Academic Papers icon ---> APA Format paper; MLA format paper et al. Then the format will be saved to your Recent Templates folder when you click New whenever you want to access the template for a new APA paper. The only plus is you can paste your citation into a box that formats the citation in the correct font and punctuation, this is not worth $35 to me. It's not that hard to get a quick cheat sheet for free and tape it to my folder.

5.0 out of 5 stars APA...Help is here! February 2, 2012
By Tranton
APA...Help is here!
I went back to college after many years to get a second degree. I was confronted with APA and had no idea what I was doing. Thanks to PERRLA for APA, my papers had the correct format and I learned what APA was all about. PERRLA saved me hours of work. A must have for any undergraduate or graduate student.

5.0 out of 5 stars PERRLA is great software!!! March 17, 2012
By JaneR
Verified Purchase
I purchased this software because the online class I was taking requires a paper a week, each one in APA style. This software has saved me a ton of time trying to get all the elements of APA style correct - the software does it for me.

They have a very comprehensive website that tells you all about the software, and has videos so you can get a clear picture of how it works. [...] Works in MLA style too.

It was recommended to me by a friend who also takes college classes. I owe her big time, this is great software and I highly recommend it.

As far as working with this company goes, no problems at all. They shipped quickly, it arrived quickly, all was good. I would order from this company again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy skeptic turned true believer. October 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
I went into this purchase like I go into anything, very skeptical. Look let's be honest, formatting a paper is not rocket science. It does not require much practice to get the hang of it either. I have been writing APA format for several years now and I have never been docked points for format issues. With all this said though, I would still buy this software. Sure you can easily format a paper, but you can also just as easily turn the channel on your tv manually as opposed to using the remote. The context is in the ease of use and the time it saves.

This software is very easy to use and walks you through any questions you may run into. Once you install the software it automatically creates an add-in function to Word, which integrates very nicely. This software also gives you ease of mind. Instead of proof reading your work for APA format errors you can instead focus on proper grammar and sentence flow. This easily shaves off about 30 minutes to an hour of assignment time when you consider initial formatting and proof reading formatting (not to mention the headaches of referencing).

This product delivers. The proof is in the pudding. The rating on this product sits at a very high score and it is very well deserved. I would recommend this software to freshmen and upperclassmen in a heart beat. These guys really did a good job.

Quick note: I notice that there is a couple lower scores on this review, but after reading them I am forced to believe that it is probably due to human error on their part. It seems that one of their customer reps has done a pretty thorough job trying to rectify the problem but there has been zero reply from the person complaining. Seems to me if I had a real problem I might try to have customer service resolve the issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got me the "A" for paper April 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
Incredible software. I was losing points for citing when the content was excellent so I bought Perrla. What a difference! I use about 16-20 cites per 4 page paper for my third year nursing class in APA style with a paper a week.

It is so gratifying to not lose significant points for APA style 6th edition when a passing grade is an 82% or B- for my college major. Thanks Perrla!
Oh yes, I bought the hard copy version, installed with no problem and was writing my paper within minutes of installation. However, I did carefully watch those videos on their site first when I test drove their online download version, and liked it so much I promptly bought the hard copy. Just wish I had it earlier.

I got 100% for the first paper I used for PERRLA, unlike the last paper without PERRLA that had about 12 citations/references). It is nice to get points for your thoughts and not have to worry about all those cites. I can't stand using the APA style 6th edition, but apparently this is what a number of colleges require you to write in. Yecch.

Just have to be careful to not leave spaces after your entries or when you double check your references, you will see spaces where there shouldn't be and don't add commas or punctuation if the box that pops up on that particular reference says to not use any punctuation.

Really, I wish I used it from the beginning, now I am trying to catch up on all the points I lost to get that "A" for the class.
