SMRTguides: Home



SMRTguides are quick-guide manuals to help students with the How To of many elements of APA Style rules/conventions, MS Word formatting requirements, as well as other notable components of writing and formatting the capstone. The Walden University editors created SMRTguides as straightforward, step-by-step sets of instructions (including screenshots) that students can follow while creating and formatting the capstone.

The PDFs presented on this page can be opened online, downloaded, and saved on a computer for later reference, or even printed off and put together as a user's manual.
