APA Manual 6th edition
The definitive source for APA format. This sixth edition has had some problems... The first printing, July 2009, contained errors (HUH?? The writing SOURCE had written mistakes????). APA immediately put a pdf file on their site to correct the errors. Naturally, people were angry...but APA did a second printing and honored all returns, replacing it with the corrected version. The problem, though, was that it became hard to find the 2nd printing. All the major places for purchasing books, both in-store and online sites were trying to get rid of the first error-filled printing. That is still going on as of now (June '10).
If you can get your hands on the 2nd or 3rd printing, BUY it. Not only does it have all the updated material, but it is also such a great improvement over Edition 5. It has less pages, is much more reader-friendly and less confusing. Being a psychology grad student, I need to keep it close for all of my papers, and I am glad for the size and format.
I'm an APA geek...which is kinda weird. :) I like the order that this new edition brings to the APA format.
Good book...just make sure that you don't buy the printing from July 2009. Get the October 2009 or December 2009 printing.Read full review
