This is an online textbook freely accessible to TAMU-C students; therefore,
PURCHASE IS OPTIONAL and no hardcopies have been requested to be stocked by the university bookstores.
Further, this book is now officially out of print so finding a hard copy might
present a challenge, but, if you're up the hunt you can try places such as
Barnes & Noble,
eBay or any one of a variety of on-line sources. As a reference, the
going price for a new text when still in print, was $58.00. Prices for OOP
books can vary greatly. If you find a new one for less that this, it's
probably a good deal. I've seen them in the $80-$90 range. I have
also see them on eBay in the $20-$30 range.

The APA manual is available from practically
any booksource. As a graduate student you most likely already have this book
unless you are relatively new in your program. If you don't have it, get
it now. If you're in a Doctoral program and don't have it already,
shame on you. ;-) You can't write a dissertation in Ed.
