Came to $109! Just for that bag.I just had that book this past semester. I got the book new and with mynursinglab (which we didn't use) for $150. The copyright date doesn't matter. Just get the correct edition.

I had a girl sit next to me with an old ed. of A&P and I helped her match up with the new one.
