Needless to say, I was right in doing so.
I ordered this book February 27, 2012, and according to the inside of my copy, this is the fifth printing (January 2011) of this book. Rest assured that if you order from Amazon, you're getting the latest copy of a terrific resource and at the best price available.
Book: five stars...a terrific resource for anyone writing in the APA style.
Amazon experience: five stars...don't worry guys, you're getting the most recent version.
I hope I have helped alleviate some of the concerns posted here. While getting the proper version of this book might've been a problem in the past, it is no longer an issue.
I just wanted to add that I am not talking about the errors that accompanied the first printing, this was supposedly a 7th printing with the "errors" fixed. This was a book that had clearly been badly re-typed by someone, as can be seen in the pics I included. This is a counterfeit product IMO.
Personally, I detest APA since I am a historian by trade and write primarily in Turabian. I end up with the same problems there because they updated that version with a new upgrade and made changes. APA will almost certainly be making changes for electronic materials, but until they do you had better be using the formats in this book. So much of this book is vital to your success in the doctoral process, that I highly advise everyone to steer clear of older versions. I know that bites in the reselling, but that’s just the way it is.
I love e-books, but in this case I definitely preferred the print version. I have so many screens open on the computer as it is now. That made me stick with the print version. It also appears that the fifth and sixth printings of the 6th Edition version are the ones that have been revised and corrected the most. So keep that in mind when ordering this book and stick with the newest version or printing. Again, this is a must have book for doctoral students who use APA. Since so much depends on the way you write, you should invest in this book and the newest version of it. This is definitely not the book to cut corners on.
I’ve used it since I got it and it has definitely helped me get to where I am at. Every time I made an error with the formats it was my fault and not the book’s. This is the version my chair has sitting beside him as well as the rest of the committee members. I know because he told me the school sent them the newest versions to use. So there you go. With the high costs of grad school and the length of time you will be investing in the programs, paying $35 or so for this book is one of the best investments you will be making for your education. To give you an idea of how important this book is, my wife bought her own copy for her use because I was using mine so much!
