A useful resource for those who want to practice (or learn) effective writing skills. I find it especially helpful when preparing manuscripts for publication, or even letters to the editor of a newspaper. The spiral binding was a great idea!
Love this product!! Both wife and I are using it for college right now. She working on her Masters and I on my BA. This has so much great knowledge on writing that I wish I had it sooner in my college career.
This is a concise, quick reference guide when writing APA styles papers for college. I still have the full publication manual, too, but this version is easy to carry to and from class and covers enough until dissertation time. At that point, you'll need the full publication manual. Until then, this is the best desk reference book for APA style I've found. I have it highlighted, bookmarked, and have been using it for several years.
The university I am currently attending requires us to have this book for every class. It has certainly come in handy to help me as I write papers in APA style. It's an easy to read reference guide concerning anything APA style. It's very user friendly.
This book was okay and provided important information regarding APA style, but it is not worth buying. I bought it during my freshman year in college because I thought I needed it for a class. After the semester, I ended up selling it back, since I found out that most of the APA formatting requirements can be found online from reputable sources (such as Purdue Owl). Unless you would rather have a physical book to reference, I recommend reviewing what APA sources are offered online.
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.
I was taking a Business writing class in college and the text book from the class wasn't helping. This book helped it went back to MLA format and APA format, all the things I took in Eng 111 but also helped with my college Eng 114. This book helped me get an A in my last college English class.
