APA Reading


While the NFG does an excellent job of giving you detailed instructions as to how to cite sources in the text as well as how to create a references list according to APA guidelines, their description of formatting a paper leaves something to be desired. Also, the NFG does NOT reflect recent the APA 2011 changes.

However, please glance over pages 509-519 -- if only briefly before you toss it into your backpack for tomorrow's class. (You may find the Diana Hacker website more helpful in this regard.)

However, you may find pages 488, 494-95, 501, 503 & 504 in the NFG particularly helpful. On these pages, the NFG breaks down popular sources by the information you need for bibliographic citations. It may prove useful for the future to acquaint yourself with this information!
