All individuals who are responsible for preparing copy for print and electronic communications will want to purchase copies of the AP Stylebook and Webster’s New World College Dictionary for handy reference. Both reference works are available at most major booksellers.
The AP Stylebook is organized alphabetically by general category. For example, if you have question about whether B.A. requires periods or bachelor’s degree needs an apostrophe, you should look under the entry academic degrees. Style questions regarding numbers are answered under the entry numbers. The stylebook has specialized sections for "Sports Guidelines and Style," "Business Guidelines and Style" and a "Guide to Punctuation."
