I'm very unfamiliar with .bst files. I'm not using BibLatex yet, just standard BibTex. If I want the apa-good.bst to work with my thesis, do I have to also have the apa.cls in the same directory? I apologize up front for the newbie question.

No. (Did you try it?) :) – Alan Munn Feb 18 '13 at 3:57
@AlanMunn Honestly, I don't know whats going on... when I try to compile the thesis Bibtex I get 3087 errors (literally) so I'm just trying to find out what I needed to get it to run the apa format. – BoZiffer Feb 18 '13 at 4:32
Before working with your thesis, try a simple small document with one or two citations, natbib and no other packages loaded. Does that work? What kind of errors are you getting, and when? (During the latex compilation or the bibtex compilation?) – Alan Munn Feb 18 '13 at 4:42
@AlanMunn I managed to muscle my way through it. Thanks Alan. – BoZiffer Feb 26 '13 at 18:21
