Textbooks 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 the Modified Mastering A&P Access code that goes with the lecture textbook by Amerman and a copy of the lecture textbook. Please note that the same MAP access code will be used for both the lecture and lab courses.
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.
