I am getting ready to start my MSN in a few weeks. The cost of books is quite a doozy!!! I have to get the 10th edition of Bates Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking. With the cd and access code it's going to be about $100. But I can get the International Edition for under $50. It's paperback and I run the risk of the pages being printed in B&W, which would be a bummer with all the pictures it has. Has anyone tried this route before with books?
