I am looking for the teachers books and test book and key,  for Abeka American Government and Economics.  I don't know how to find the isbn numbers.  I looked at Abeka's web site but they only have thier item numbers available. 

I'd like to out them on my wish list in case they get posted.  Any suggestions? Or better yet anyone have them?

Here's what I do....

First I search for the book's name in the search engine here on PBS.  Select "all books" so that you can see if it's been wishlisted or is in the system.

If it's already been added to the system, I use that #.  If not, you'll have to post under the "books without ISBNs" section.

Hope that helps!

ETA:  I looked in the system and ISBN# 2593 is the book that you have (I think).  There's currently no wishlist, but you can use that number.

ABeka books do not have isbn #'s.

This makes it very frustrating to list them into this system. I gave up after the first few, and either listed them as freebies here, or am offering them on a used book list. I don't have the ones you are looking for though.

Best wishes to you in finding what you need!

I always go into Amazon and put the name it and it will pull up the isbn with the book if there is one.  Moonpie

Abeka doesn't put ISBN's on their stuff - that's why you can't find it.

You'll have to manually enter the book(s).  I am SO ANNOYED when people do this with Abeka books (and others) and don't list the grade levels.  It's very hard to find titles on Abeka's site and match them to the grade levels.  So please, when entering them, say what grade level they are...also if it's a teacher's edition or not.
