Research and APA Style Guide 2010, 2nd ed. 
This is a guide to doing, using, and citing research in all your coursework (papers, presentations, discussion postings). It is a required resource in all courses; you are expected to submit assignments that meets these standards. The first part of the guide contains tips on doing research through CityU's online portal as well as on the Internet. The second part covers how to use research effectively in your work, and the final part focuses on APA format and style.

Students with the first edition: The first edition is still mostly good, but you should replace pp. 31-57 and p. 67. Over the last year, the APA and its followers have corrected and clarified some issues with the reference list, and so the 2nd edition contains a changed and better Chapter IV: Reference List Guide. Besides that, the other changes in the 2nd edition are minor.

For an APA format cheat sheet, you can download one of the following example papers and use it as a formatting base for your own papers:
APA Format Example in Microsoft Word 97-2003 (.doc)
APA Format Example in Microsoft Word 2007 (.docx)
