This guide, updated for use with the fifth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, is designed to help improve students' understanding and use of APA style before they begin writing, allowing instructors in academic settings to concentrate more on course material and less on correcting errors in students' papers. The resource contains eight multiple-choice assessment surveys, correction keys and answer sheets, along with instructions on how to incorporate this material into a curriculum. The text should also enable editorial trainers to help polish their copy-editors skills as they gain knowledge of APA style and the Publication Manual. Included are style points for references and citations, grammar, headings, serialization, statistical and mathematical copy, italics and capitalization, numbers style, and table formatting. The guide can be used as a learning module for the classroom or for independent study.
