This reference book, updated for the 7th edition of the APA, simplifies the process of writing using the APA writing style.
Writing in the APA format can be a formidable process. The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th edition) was developed as a writing technique utilized by both academic and nonacademic institutions and publications. While this reputable manual is the official guide, it is not explicitly targeted at academic scholarly writing . . . particularly student papers. APA: The Easy Way! (7th edition) specifically focuses on the development of academic writing. It highlights related aspects of the manual while providing examples that simplify the writing process. While the official publication distinguishes between professional and student papers, this book focuses primarily on the student paper format.
Included in APA: The Easy Way! are the essentials of APA writing style. The book is divided into three sections. Part one focuses on the mechanics of APA format as well as internal text citations; part two emphasizes the actual reference page entries; and part three provides a sample paper.
Combined with the official manual, Houghton & Houghton's handbook will ease the anguish and anxiety that APA writing style presents!
