This discusses the importance of APA format in regard to writing.
The advantages of using APA format for academic papers are many. First of all the APA Guidelines contain strict rules in the design of the paper itself. References, information, and the paper itself all follow a specific stature of commitment. The APA guidelines were developed to ensure the reader of the written material can easily understand the theme of the paper as well as gain an understanding of its theory.
The APA format is an organized way to display the information the writer wishes to convey in the written article. References as well as citations are all organized in a format and the reader can easily refer back to the original writer secondary to the organization of the paper.
The aspect of APA I find most difficult is the references. I am having some difficulty with this secondary to I always like to memorize everything. I am learning I need to keep referencing back to needed parts of the APA as I have not memorized all of its content as of this date.
