    I did check the publishers site and the book store and everything I could think of. They don't sell the workbooks separate from the textbook in which it's partnered. Unfortunately. But I have enough in my loan for this semester left to get the books I need.

    Powell's saves me hundreds of dollars every quarter. Couldn't make it without them.

    I checked Amazon and they had one seller on there with positive reviews selling the book for $80 something bucks. It is said to be used, but still in good condition. But I don't want to purchase anything yet before I do my research.

    Are there any good, trustworthy, internet sites that specialize in selling new text books for cheap prices that you can recommend??

    I would really appreciate your input because I can't be off spending an additional $125 when I have auto Insurance, Tuition, which I'm sure will be over $800, and other bills that need to be paid off by the end of next month.

    $125 for a $50 book proves there is price gouging going on in my opinion.
    China.
    See if there is anyone you know going to China (or there right now) and ask them to get you the copied version cheap.
    Yes, it's possibly illegal.

    You could also ask a poor classmate to go in halvsies, and share the book. I have no idea of the logistics of this, though.
