This book is a must have for anyone writing university level psychology. I would never have gotten that thesis together without this book. Makes the vagaries of APA syle less confusing. If you are struggling with your work for uni or publication this bood is a must have.
This book is obviously necessary for anyone who needs to write in the APA format. It clearly stipulates what writers need to know to format their articles correctly. I recommend this book for anyone needing to write in the APA format. As a psychology student, I have found it extremely useful to answer all the little questions a person unfamiliar with writing articles has about format. I own the spiral-bound edition.
