Styles do differ and I tend ON OCCASION TO MAKE THE ERROR occasion to make the error using MLA when I need to use APA in my own reports Nothing huge such as formatting the References section wrong but the occasional difference of whether to use Italics or uotation marks well I guess that could be a big error This workbook will I believe cement the APA format firmly into my mind I definitely recommend this book for anyone who must employ proper APA styling BTW I bought the spiral bound version a bit worried about the uality of the paper and whether it would easily tear but my fears are unfounded The paper is of good enough uality that I don t believe this will be a problem I do wish it came in a hard cover version always my first choice in a book to which I may be referring in the future I bought this book because the university said I needed it to learn APA not me specifically but students in general It is the worst workbook study guide I have ever had ever The layout is horrible examples are nonexistant explinations poor navigation pathetic I do not recommend this for anyone If I could give it lower than 1 star I would Not only that who has time to do an entire workbook of uestions try to find the answers and study and work at the same time not me I to find the answers and study and work at the same time not me I t really love this book because it s a school book but as far as APA handbooks go this is an all encompassing guide and includes lots of practice exercises I had just started to an online college that reuires APA Style and I had never written anything in APA "Before Even With All Of The Online "Even with all of the online I prefer the written book It has helped me to understand APA very well It goes along with the APA manual and I could not live without it I would suggest anyone who has to write papers in the APA style to purchase the manual and the workbook They are an invaluable tool for colleg.
