A: To cite our test prep booklets as a resource in your teaching syllabus, you should know that the titles of nearly all our publications begin with "Applied Practice in ..." Also, we do not identify individual writers by name, so the author should be cited simply as "Applied Practice." Our headquarters are located in Dallas, Texas, and the year of copyright will vary from one title to another. As a template for citing our books in MLA format, we suggest the following entry for Applied Practice in Wuthering Heights:
Applied Practice. Applied Practice in Wuthering Heights. Dallas: Applied Practice, 1999.
