Perrin's POCKET GUIDE TO APA STYLE, 7th Edition, is your essential tool for writing research papers in every course you take. Concise yet thorough, the POCKET GUIDE presents straightforward explanations, annotated examples and margin notes that help you write properly documented papers in the latest APA style. Student-friendly organization, quick-reference indexing and a convenient spiral design make it easier to use than the APA Manual. Expansive, up-to-date coverage of electronic sources prepares you to evaluate and use internet references correctly in your research, while new guidelines help you appropriately incorporate footnotes. An appendix on annotated bibliographies provides guidance plus plenty of examples. Also available: MindTap English.
