About the Book

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!

Education is one of the best investments you will ever make... and our books maximize that investment!
— Houghton & Houghton

About the Author

After over 40 years of teaching experience, Houghton & Houghton realize students and professionals find the mechanics of following approved writing styles quite confusing. In response, they developed a series of books that simplify the experience of adhering to the rules of the APA, MLA, Turabian, and Gregg writing styles.

Their books clarify important aspects of these writing styles. They are not intended to replace the manuals, but to transform the available information into more user friendly guides, making it easier for students to reference common writing issues. Frequently used aspects of structure, arrangement, citation, and referencing are addressed in simple formats that allow writers to focus on content rather than mechanics and style. Quite simply, the books int he Easy Way Series present the basics in clear, concise, accurate, and easy to navigate packages.

Join the hundreds of thousands of people who have simplified the writing process by using Houghton & Houghton The Easy Way Series books.
