Books for Fall 2006 semester

Hello all -

I an attempt to help you all save money, I am posting the textbooks that I will be using for the courses that I will be teaching next semester. To the right, I've inlcuded links that will help you track the least expensive prices for each one of these books. My suggestion is that you try to procure these texts as soon as possible - what I have seen is that the books tend to increase in price as the fall semester approaches.

WARNING: You may be tempted to order the old copies of books. Please, don't order old copies of books. Psychology in general and school psychology in specific changes VERY rapidly. For example, the laws governing school psychology practice were modified in 2004, so many of the textbooks have been either re-written or are in the process of being re-written to keep up with these changes.
