Getting Citation without Getting a Headache

Do you find the prospect of college writing intimidating? You aren't alone. Most students aren't sure what to expect.

It's okay. Believe me, you can do this.

In college, you will be faced with many new concepts, such as writing rubrics which can act as your personal cheat sheets if you know how to use them.

One of the most important things you'll learn is one of the many citation styles and manuscript formats. Different schools demand different ones- APA format and MLA writing format are the two most common.

With time, you will become familiar with APA citation for print sources and for online sources.

Beyond citation, you'll need to master the standard APA paper format or MLA citation styles and formats.

And did I mention the citation exceptions and special circumstances?

You may not know these things now, but you will. Don't let it overwhelm you. Believe it or not, each of the skills you learn in college writing will pay big dividends in your career, even if you do not write for a living.
