Appendix B ENG/102 Version 4 1 Associate Level Material Appendix B Using Microsoft ® Word to Help With Formatting Basics You may use the ribbon menu options in Microsoft ® Word to help you format academic papers according to college requirements and APA style guidelines. Font Font Types Fonts come in two types: serif and sans serif. Serif . This is an example of a Serif font . The most popular serif fonts include Times New Roman , Century Schoolbook , and Garamond . Books, newspapers, and other printed materials (excluding electronic materials) typically use serif fonts, which are easier to read in hard copy. Most readers are accustomed to seeing these fonts. Sans Serif . This is an example of a Sans Serif font .   The clean, simple lines of sans serif fonts are preferable for viewing print on a computer screen. Do not use fonts such as Broadway , Comic Sans , or any other elaborate or fancy font for academic papers—these fonts detract from the readability of the paper. Use Times New Roman, Arial, or Courier for all your academic papers. Font Styles All text must be written in the same font: o Use Times New Roman font. Arial and Courier font are also acceptable. o Use 12-point size. Use italics sparingly for emphasis; do not use bold (acceptable for paragraph headings), underlining, or all capital letters.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
