Note: You are welcome to find used books in the SAME EDITION. When you follow the links to Amazon, you will see some offers for used books below the price. Click on that link and it will take you to a list of all the used books available. Use the filter on the left-hand side to choose either GOOD or VERY GOOD condition and then look at the comments for a clean book with little or no markings. Purchasing used books can significantly cut down your costs, but be aware that you may have to pay up to $4 for shipping which they will tack onto the used-book price.  Here is a short video explaining how you might order used books on Amazon.
