In the new edition of WRITING WITH STYLE, the authors continue to provide students with guidance on how to prepare a research paper using APA style. The book applies a "learning through modeling" approach, which is in keeping with the social work profession's literature. It is replete with exercises that reinforce and instill the basic elements of the APA style. Students can fill in the exercises directly in the book and thereby develop their writing skills.
