APA Style Citations are recommended for Education, Psychology, and Science Classes. To be more specific, classes such as Psychology, Linguistics, Sociology, Economics, and Criminology, Business, and Nursing might ask you to use this type of citation.

Quotations and other types of content also have their own format requirements.
