My daughter is going to be a senior in high school in the fall, but she is also taking some college classes concurrently.  I have managed to find all of the books she will need except for this one.  I know that it is wishlisted, but I'm hoping that someone has one that is unpostable that they would be willing to send me for a credit.  Thanks so much!!

I know most college classes want you to have the most current edition, but if she doesn't need the 9th edition I have a copy of the 2nd edition on my shelf.  That's probably not much help, I know.  Maybe someone else will have it for you.

I will have her check with her instructor to see if an earlier edition will work.  Thanks, Heather!

Angela,

I did some checking here last night and found that there are several other more recent editions available.  The 8th edition is available here at PBS.  So if earlier edition works, you might want to get one that is closer to the 9th edition.  They are more likely to have the fewest number of changes between editions.
