Textbook Purchasing Statement: A student attending Lamar State College Port Arthur is not under any obligation to purchase a textbook from the college-affiliated bookstore. The same textbook may also be available from an independent retailer, including an online retailer.
-The REQUIRED workbook for the Bio 2101 lab (A&P1) is “Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy & Physiology” by Greene, Robinson, and Strong. 1st ed. Pearson Publishing, ISBN:978-01-354-79-391
You will also need a copy of the lecture textbook and the Modified Mastering A&P Access code that goes with the lecture textbook. The lecture textbook is "Human Anatomy & Physiology", 2nd ed by Erin Amerman. The ISBN number for the lecture textbook only is 978-0134-754-239. The ISBN number for the Modified Mastering A&P access code is 978-0-134-78807-4
The MAP access code can be purchased directly from Pearson on the Mastering A&P site which is the cheapest place to get it.
