APA Bibliography

:iconfairy-red-hime:
Fairy-Red-Hime Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012
I have to make an annotated bibliography for my English finals project, and it has to be in APA style. ._. I finished mine yesterday, but today as I was looking it over before turning it in, I realized I fucked up. My notes were neat and orderly, but they weren't in APA style. Like a dodo, I forgot.

I have 10 minutes till class begins. While I fix it, I'll bitch on dA about it. Fuck you, APA.

Our university decided to change our reference system to APA this year, that is AFTER I got used to our old system, this whole bibliography thing is a joke :X

I know right? "OTL It would be important if any of us were Psychology majors, but no-one in my class is. :grump: I guess the professor is a fan or something.

My professor is actually against it, he thinks it's a total waste of time, but he can't do anything about it because the university has the last say :no:

I gotta get back to it now, my deadlines are approaching :X Hope you managed to fix it properly though! :hug:

I feel for you. I hate annotated bibliographies, and I hate APA even more.
...wait, why are they using APA if they're an English class? That's from the psychology association, and MLA is from a language association, i.e. better suited for an English class. You must have a really dumb professor, unless the class is to help you learn about all forms?? That is so confusing.

Eh, I'm an education student, and we use APA for everything, from our psychology classes, to curriculum, to English.

I guess it's it's to learn about all the different forms. :shrug: The English class I'm taking is called "Methods of Written Communication". The Accuplacer test put me there. Oh, well, after this I never have to touch another English class again. No more APA for me.

Annotated bibliographies are kinda shit.

I have no idea what APA style is, though.

They are "OTL I remember why I hated English.

APA is a style of noting your source or some nonsense like that. You have to list the name of the article/book/source/etc, the date published, the author, and so on, in a certain order.

It was funny; all through high school I used MLA, and then suddenly college and "Whip! APA it is!"

I wanted to shoot something.

Me too. "OTL I can understand why a teacher would need to see your sources, but it's still rather annoying.

As long as they're annotated, I really don't understand why it should matter...

Sucks to be you :iconunwinkplz:

Our professor point-blank said if it's not in APA style, he'd just give it a zero. :| Indeed, I ended up being late to class after I fixed it.
