A & P 1 at Valley College San Bernardino


Hi. I am taking A & P 1 at Valley College and am having trouble finding the book used. New it is $180. Any ideas? I have tried all the used book websites, craigslist, ebay..... The book is Anatomy and Physiology Looseleaf. I went to the bookstore and it is packaged in plastic and looks like a set, so I don't even know if you can buy it used. Thanks for any help.

If you are having trouble finding the book used I would suggest buying the packaged set new at the bookstore. I will be starting my second semester in the nursing program at SBVC and I can't even count how many times I had to refer back to my A&P books. The sad part is that I had to "rebuy" them because I had sold them back while I was taking my pre-req's for the program. I know they are expensive but it is a good investment. You will definitely need them later when you go into the nursing program. Good Luck in your class!

Thank you so much for the information. I will go and buy it tomorrow. (ouch!!!) But, if I will need it while in nursing school, then it is a good investment. BTW, you go to valley? How long was the waiting list for you to get into the nursing program? My clock is ticking, I am 46 and I hope to finish these pre reqs and get into the nursing program before too long. Thanks again.
