I m working on my master s degree in Library and Information Science and APA is the preferred style for my program I was reuired to purchase this manual for one of intro classes and to cite it for assignments otherwise I think I could ave probably done without it The reason is that there are many free online sources for APA style guidelines my favorite being the Purdue "OWL Website While This Book Is Well Formatted And Clearly " website While this book is well formatted and clearly it is simply much easier and faster to search a website for answers to most formatting uestionsThe main benefit I see for owning this book is that it offers many excerpts of sample papers and reference pages Many APA formatting samples are available online but Hang Loose Without Booze having this book to refer to takes away any doubt about the correct formatting Other than that I don t see a lot of benefits to owning this book other than that it goes into detail about style rules than online sources My biggest wishas been that the APA would publish a searchable version of their guide online I would appily pay good money for the convenience I am giving the low star amount because I believe I was sent a knock off of the real thing Although it was new and packaged as soon as I pulled off the wrapping I noticed it ad a Rahasia Makrifat Nabi Khidir a.s. horrid smell I ve never smelled anything like it so it sard to describe But it s terrible Then
