Review:

“Finally, a really Easy Guide to APA Style. College faculty and their students will rejoice because the mysterious and onerous task of teaching students how to write in APA style and format just got easier. Schwartz, Landrum, and Gurung provide us with clear rules for murky situations like when to use quotes, when to use italics, and when to rewrite. This will be a well-worn book for everyone who cares about writing well in APA style.” (Diane F. Halpern, Ph.D. 2011-01-18)

“I have worked with the APA Publication Manual since its 2nd edition, when it was half as thick as the current edition. As the manual has evolved, it has gotten more and more complicated, and I believe that student understanding of and adherence to the Manual has done nothing but decrease over time. If you have the same impression, here is a book for your students! Schwartz, Landrum, and Gurung have created an easy-to-understand, entertaining guide to the complexities of APA-style writing. I can’t wait to recommend it to my students."

(Randolph A. Smith, Ph.D. 2011-01-18)

"This is excellent!! Our students struggle with APA style & this guide is very helpful."

(Dr. Marjory Levitt)

"Easier for students to use than the standard APA Manual, and it is affordable..."

(Dr. Chriss Foster)
