    Default Which style guide do you use?

    ∫The Amazing Cooper™∫ normally consults the Associated Press Stylebook.

    Which style guide do you normally use when writing? I imagine most of you guys use CMOS or Strunk & White.

    Depends on what I'm writing. A scientific article normally uses APA format. I did most of my college papers with MLA format and Chicago citation.

    I am in graduate school. I use Style Ease Pro which formats my papers in APA format. It has been well worth the initial investment.

    Like Ghosts said, it depends on what I am writing that determines which style I use. I've written many papers using MLA, APA, and Chicago and don't really have a preference between the 3.
    A lot of time, thought, and effort went into creating this signature.

    We always used Harvard Business School's format during my commerce courses.

    I always used APA format and prefer that over MLA of course I was writing psych papers so it was required.
