A very helpful resource for students jumping in to APA style.  Seems to cover the types of citations that nearly all secondary and undergraduate students will need to prepare for their coursework.  Especially helpful are sections showcasing pages from an APA-formatted paper and an example of an annotated bibliography.  Was thinking the inclusion of descriptions of APA formatting software (e.g. Endnote, Zotero, or Refworks) would be a good next step.

Technical Remarks:

All links appear to be working.  Interface is difficult to engage with right off the bat.  It's difficult to see the main menu needed to navigate this very helpful resource.
