An ideal tool for students writing research papers across the disciplines, the Pocket Guide To Apa Style, 5E offers straightforward explanations, annotated examples, and margin notes designed to help students write properly documented papers in the latest APA style.
Thorough and practical, this concise guide not only is less expensive and easier for undergraduates to use than the APA Manual but also includes additional information about the research writing process. In this updated edition, students also will find extensive coverage of electronic sources, preparing them to evaluate and use Internet references correctly in their research.
"I would describe the POCKET GUIDE TO APA STYLE as 'a must' for any student who is required to do research papers and presentations."
