New or used (if available) books will work equally well for this course.

Note: The book is a consummer market book and should cost substantially less than a single textbook. Current (8/2014) Amazon prices new are $33.07.

Note the Kindle versions and rental versions sometimes are often missing resources like Appendices and sample files, BUT we can generally work around that by me adding the materials to the Web site – so let me know if that happens.
