*essay.y20.all-about.in* When my friends asked me how I cope with so many things, I just recommend them this site. And nothing more. But it is already enough. This company is great and doesn't need much praise. Their impeccable service speaks for itself.

5:10 Whenever you change, add or delete any single word or even a letter, you need to clearly indicate it. In the video, the very first letter of the quote becomes lowercase in citation, so the it should have been "[F]or a situational ... ".
Ben Phillips (2 months ago)
I always follow APA 6.07 in this case ("Changes from the source requiring no explanation"). The manual states, "The first letter of the first word in a quotation may be changed to an uppercase or a lowercase letter" (p. 172). Since the heading of this section indicates "requiring no explanation," I think the brackets are not needed.

bruh, everything we learn is someone else's ideas, even when I come up with an idea, someone else had also come up with it, therefore anything i right surely is not my own; wouldn't an essay just be one big ass citation?

Just another something to distract from the education system. I've spent more time looking up how to format a paper for a non-english class then focusing on the teachings of the class. Here is a fact. No idea is truly original. Thank you for explaining it!!!

Mr. Phillips this is a good start, but these references are easily used in Microsoft Word Citations and Bibliography (Reference tab), you simply fill in the information under the book or journal. The harder APA references are for videos,  library sources, and websites. I get my errors from video references.
Lallie Hayes (1 year ago)
The References tools are fairly reliable for formatting print references (except for line spacing) but not necessarily for electronic references. You still need to have a good grasp of style requirements so you can catch mistakes that Word makes. Microsoft is not going to update their software whenever APA or MLA makes a change. But when starting a new document you can search for an APA template. Word 2016 returns 2. "Trust, but verify." Ronald Reagan
