The 7th edition was just published, but we will use the 6th edition for the course and supplement with more recent material from the web and from electronic databases. You should be able to find the 6th ed. for a reasonable price. Also, check your local libraries for various editions of the manual. Remind your favorite librarians to order the 7th edition.
