    I used endnote - which was perfect for me and I loved! I am going to check out perrla though.

    ETA: Perrla looks like a great formatting tool. Endnote is a database which does what perrla does but also downloads your refs from ebsco and other sources, allows you to keywioard search and store them etc. If you don't need to keep permanant files of your references and use them over (such as for going from a thesis to a dissertation) then perrla is probably fine. Endnote also does manuscript formats for publications other than APA so if you write for publication Endnote would be a better choice.

    I also hit a few websites on APA:
    Purdue's site
    http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
    and the APA Wizard
    http://www.stylewizard.com/apa5/apawiz.html
    Thanks, bookmarked them.

    Hated the book, bought software for APA from referencepointsoftware.com
    Never lost sleep or points after that.
