Can anyone help with APA?? I need a crash course in writing APA style. Anyone have a good link they can recommend? Or any tips? I'm putting the finishing touches on a project paper today and the instructor downgrades HEAVILY if you don't follow strict APA format.

Here's a link that might help you out in the short term:

http://www.apastyle.org/

At the bottom of the page there's a link to "Style Tips". That should get you started at least.

If you think you'll be using it often enough, I do recommend the Publication Manual shown on that site. I've found it invaluable in my coursework.

If you can make it by the library, pick up "A Writers Reference" by Diana Hacker. Might not help today(I dont know what time it is there for you) but for later papers it will. I use it ALL the time for writing papers, has just about everything you could want in it.
