    Hi
    Im wondering whether anyone would be able to check my references over for my psychology assignment. No matter how long i spend on doing them and following instructions we've been given i get so confused, and usually end up losing a lot of marks due to having errors within the reference section.
    Any help would be greatly appriciated.
    Thanks

    Buy the APA manual 6 (or 5 if your school is still using it). They are pretty simple.

    Katechar, X. (2010). Why do I still suck at APA references? The Journal of Undergraduate Woes
    {indent here}, 123, 345-346.

    Psych!, Z. (2010). Why Undergraduates almost never pick up APA style even after 3 years of a
    {indent here}Psychology Degree. London: Sage Publishing.

    Katechar, X. (2010). I hate APA: help me! In Z. Psych & X. Katechar (Eds.), Why even bother with
    {indent here}APA? (pp. 237-278). Retrieved from http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=

    A second easy option is to find an APA journal article and just check your style against them. And, finally, you could find one of the online crib sheets on APA - but you need to be careful of the swap to APA 6. It is somewhat different to APA 5.
