I had the previous version of this little handbook, just got this updated version, and I swear by it. As a University instructor, I always recommend it to my graduate students, and those who bother to get it find APA much easier. Sure beats digging through the big blue book! Easy to find everything I need, great examples.

For whatever reason, the publisher decided to omit any page numbers in the index. So, at least on the Mac/iPad, the book is not searchable beyond the table of contents

Be careful with the pages as you turn them, they are on a spiral bound binding and can tear. THe book itself is a great reference, not too indepth and not too skimpy. Provides good reference documents in the book to refer to.

For me this product was an evil necessity. As a student in a Masters program that requires APA formatting of all submitted work, this little book has been everything I need to know about APA in one clearly outlined and well organized reference.

The spiral binding is a plus and a feature that I wish more reference books would have.

The Pocket Guide to APA Style is not something that would I normally purchase but with high grades in my Masters program being a priority, it is a product I would not dream of being without!

I like this little pocket guide to the APA style. It doesn't have a gazillion pages like an official one would and doesn't cost an arm and a leg if you buy it used. It gives you what you need in a pinch! I have used it a lot when writing papers for school and need to cite references. This shows me how to do it right for books, journal articles, magazines, websites, etc. This little guide is money well spent whether you buy it used or new.

My old APA manual was dated 1994; after attempting a few papers for grad class with it, I got notes on how bad my references were. Using the product review recomendations of others that ordered this manual, I got one for myself and it's great! It's consise, easy to navigate, and gives great examples to use. I highly recomend this manual for everyone; from high school to grad school!

Pocket Guide to APA Style

Mr. Perrins guide is absolutely excellent. It immediately had me writing in the proper format for APA. Any questions I had were well answered. About the only thing it didnt show me how to do was set up Microsoft Word to APA format. This guide contains 2 finished papers and information on how to cite everything and when. This is some of the most important information when it comes to APA format. I have had zero problems using this book to help write effective APA papers. This is a must have on the writing students book shelf as far as I am concerned

Had to have this for a class, I literally opened it up for information and quickly threw it in the bin. Hard to determine what section you are supposed to look for, also hard to read. It is far easier and better to use bibme.org or some other website.
