Had to buy it, but could live without it. 11 Jun. 2014
By Ann Stressman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was a required text for my class, but I could've done without it. It merely elaborates on the APA manual. If you need a lot of grammar and punctuation background, buy it. Otherwise, get it at the library or find another source. I did use it, but it only helped a little. My use of on-line tutorials gave me more help.

okay 16 Dec. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a required book for a doctoral course I took. Otherwise I never would have purchased it. Pretty much everything in it I learned during my masters degree program, or could have found online in various places for free.

Effective Writing in Psychology 3 Oct. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great reference for writing papers. The section on important questions to answer when writing an annotated bibliography is useful. Also it gives information on how to properly reference resources.

Revealing Insights 2 Nov. 2013
By Firpo Carr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although some parts of this publication essentially duplicates the APA manual (6th ed.), it nevertheless offers revealing insights for the uninitiated. I highly recommend it.
