    I just saw my grade on assignment #2 the APA citations. I got 4 of them wrong. I copied and pasted directly from citationmacihine.net How is that even possible? I feel very discouraged.

    Hang in there, you can do it. I thought this course would kill me when I took it back in March.
    Did the instructor correct the mistakes? Use those as references for the next assignment. I don't know why this school makes such a big deal of APA, but they do and ya just gotta go with the flow.
    I used citationmachine.net alot when I started. But you do have to double check it. Sometimes it is not 100% correct which you found out. I swear I spent twice as long on the APA stuff as I did on writing the assignnments. It was crazy making. Citationmachine is a good starting point, but if something doesn't look right, double check it against owl or your book.

    Thanks for the encouraging words. I have two kids in college who use citationmacihine for everything and have never had a problem. If I have to write out the citations by hand I'm sure I'll make even more mistakes!

    I have also been out of school for several years. This will get easier for us. I hate APA. You mention it and the expression on people's faces usually shows disguist.

    I went to school with Florence Nightengale! I don't remember ever dealing with APA formatting, however I have noticed the citation machine is not always correct. I luckily work with a few masters prepared folks who just graduated and know APA like the back of their hands. I would just double check the citation machine against the book before submitting!! good luck-we can do it!!

    I also used citationmachine.net and got 4 out of 4 correct, that I used with the website. The 1st question I didn't use the citation machine and got it wrong. If you need help using the website PM me and I'll try to help you. Make sure you are using APA and not MLA format on the website, and also that you choose the correct type of publication such as journal, magazine, book etc.

    Do you think you could send me your APA assignment? I would like to compare your answers against mine. I was really careful to choose the correct publication, there was only one I couldn't figure out so I took an educated guess - haha! I copied and pasted directly from citation machine. I wonder if different TA's grade assignments?

    Great job bushrn75! I did all the citations by looking everything up in the manual. It took me HOURS but I got them all right. I can't say that I know how to do it though. I will still have to look it up every time.

    I can't send a private message. Does anyone know if the entire program is going to be like this (read the entire book and write papers)? I though there would be online lectures. Im spending hours looking stuff up online before I can write about it. I thought it would be different.

    Sent you a pm. Not a big fan of writing papers either, and discussion post with APA references, I'm so not looking forward to 8 more classes of this!

    I'm not sure how it is going to be, but there should be someone on here who has finished the program. I haven't written papers in a really long time and it takes me awhile to get them started but as soon as I get in a groove, I'm good. For APA do you use only the book?
