    Saladin's 4th edition, form and function. Just a small $200.00....then lab same guy $30.00

    Our school used to use the Marieb's years ago, was much....cheaper

    I will also be using this book this semester. Out of curiosity: Are you, (or anyone), also using the "Interactive Cadaver Dissection Experience" DVD set along with the text & lab manual?

    Just found this site. Glad I did! Good luck to all of us this semester!!:hatparty:

    No matter which book you use, I would highly recommend that you do not sell it back! I am starting my second year of nursing school and still use my A and P book as a reference.

    I am also using this book. My bundle was around 253.00, but came with the book, lab manual, and DVD.

    I'm using the newest Saladin also but I didn't get a DVD or CD or anything! (Yes, I'm whining.) For the price I paid I want the dang disk! It's a brand new book.
    Last edit by natrgrrl on Jan 4, '07 : Reason: I just wanted to add one more thing.

    I didn't need a book for Advanced A&P. Professor said that all tests will come from labwork and lecture but if we didn't have an A&P book to reference that we should get one. So I got Marieb A&P and my lab book is also Marieb.

    The book used was $150 and I would have went to amazon.com for used, but classes start on the 8th and I wouldn't receive it in time for class.

    We are using Elaine Mariab 7th Edition (Green cover with a tennis player)text and her Lab Manual (8th edition). The text and lab manual is awesome. The web resources for her book series are even better.
    My only complaint it that the lab manual is spiral bound with small gauge wire...it takes a beating.
    I don't want to even remember what I paid for these books. They came "bundled" with the web access key, coloring book and study guide....ouch!!

    My A&P course is also using the newest Saladin book. I have not purchased it yet, it's $266 and I have been unable to find it elsewhere. I got an excellent deal on my chemistry books and the two "optional" books for A&P through Amazon and Barnes and Noble, but I cannot find another source for the big book. I even went to the publishers website (McGraw Hill) and still could not find it! Would you mind posting the ISBN from the back of the book? Good luck this semester!

    I didn't like the binding of the lab book either.....so I just took the list of which labs we were doing last term and then ripped them out of the lab book. I used a paper cutter to clean up the ripped out edge, put it through a three whole punch and then put it in a binder. I sectioned off the binder so that the informational part of the chapters were together, then the lab exercises were next and made a third section with the photocopied key my teacher provided.

    I didn't have to deal with the binding and I didn't have to carry around three terms worth of labs.

    A&P2 starts Monday, as soon as I get this terms list of labs, I'll do the same thing.

    You got a coloring book with yours? I had to buy my lab book and text seperate so that may explain it. I did get a CD ROM. Does the coloring book have an ISBN number on it? If so, would you PM me the number so I can buy one. Thanks.

    HI Snoozie64,

    Did your Saladin 4th Ed. come with the 4 disk cd/dvd, too? I purchased mine from school used for $143, but new was appx. $175.00 NOT including the lab manual or the other "optional" books, (coloring book/Photo book). Is your school charging you that much just for the book alone? anything included? Lab manual, etc...? Check out abe books.com-I see that the internaltional soft cover sells for $68.00...

    Good Luck on your search!

    We are using principles of anatomy & physiology by Tortora & Derrickson. It is HUGE! I am not sure my backpack is designed for this. I might have to breakdown and buy one of those book carriers with wheels.
    We use the same one. I usually end up putting everything else in my bag and carrying the darn thing. I think it weighs a good 20 lbs or close to it. Thankfully, I don't normally have to bring all of my other books with me. I bought a rolling bookbag last semester so I could bring my laptop too, but it ended up being a huge hassle to either lug it up the stairs or try to find a wheelchair ramp or elevator that wasn't way out of the way. I would try to pare down to the bare minimum of stuff and then see if you really need the rolling bag. I realized that I don't normally use my laptop to take notes in class (many profs seem to think that you're just surfing the internet), so I don't bring it unless I know I will need it (very rare). I also realized that I don't really need the huge binder I was carrying around or the other random things that would find their way into my bag. It really lightened my load, literally. ;-)
