  • What else do you use to help you or what do you think might be helpful? Why?

There are also many online resources to help prepare APA style papers, some free, some to be paid for. Using Google, search for sites to help you in formatting and documenting a paper in APA style.

    • How do you know that the results you get from the site are correct?
