Well I wouldn't exactly describe this as a fun read but then if you're buying this for pleasure, you probably need to see a psychologist. Of course, if you're buying this you probably are a psychologist, in which case its going to be useful.
This guide does exactly what you would expect in that it gives you a clear and easy reference for the APA style. If you want to get your psychological report published (or if you want to get a good mark for your psychology thesis) then this will be invaluable. Clearly set out in logical sections, a good index and, most importantly, lots of useful examples.
This guide is easy to read through once or twice to give you a good background awareness of most of the key APA style points and from then on is really easy to refer to if you have a specific question. Where else would you be able to find out the difference betwen an em dash, an en dash and a minus sign when you want to use a hyphen?
This guide is a complete must for anyone studying degree level psychology or beyond. This almost pocket sized guide has everything you need to know for the APA 6th revision- has quite a few little changes from the 5th edition. I literally have it glued to my side every time I am writing a report/study/essay.
I have used and used this book. It's great to have it next to me whilst writing essays. Very clear and easy to understand. I've taken a star off as there's a number of things I have to look up on the internet as they're not covered in the book.
Strange binding. This is not a manual but a really compact fast all in one reference book. The apa style is confusing, but this little booklet is a must have for all students in psychology especially the Open University. I hope it makes a difference, but our tutor constantly refer to it and from quick browsing i already got some answer.
