pseries error bound

In my BC classes we are currently in the midst of convergence testing for infinite series.
It seems I recall a bound on the error for a pseries was given by
abs(SSN)<=N^(1p)/(p1).
However, when I check a chart of convergence tests in Larson's Calculus the error term is missing. Could someone please offer some information about the validity of the error bound above or correct it.
