Adult nursing reading list

One of my lectures for anatomy and physiology put a 50 pound book from Pearson on our reading list, do I have to get it or can I just get a much cheaper book from amazon. Recommendations are welcomed btw

Surely it's available through the university library? If not, are there other A&P books available in the library? You'll also be able to find a cheaper copy of the same book elsewhere online but potentially an older edition.

I buy my books secondhand or hire from the uni library/local library.

A good book for A&P I’d recommend is The Human Body Book by David Parker. I bought it online for £5.
See what the library has, they may have the book your lecturers recommend or other texts that will be just as useful.

Some of the more common A&P books are Ross and Wilson's A&P in Health and Illness; Marieb's Essentials of Human A&P (is this the one you've been told to get?) and Tortora's Principles of Anatomy and Physiology (I have this one and use it as a reference when preparing teaching). There's usually lots of copies of these books in most decent university libraries. Ross and Wilson is really popular and relatively inexpensive compared to some texts.
