Books for next course

My next course, Research Strategies, requires three textbooks. If you have used these books, have an opinion, or a favorite textbook source, please leave a comment. As a grad student and a parent of a college freshman, we check out all sources for textbooks from used bookstores, online textbook rental sites, Google books, and college book swap sites because the college bookstores are overpriced. If you have a favorite textbook site or source, please share it as a comment.

Research Strategies for a Digital Age
Tensen, Bonnie L.
Publisher: Wadsworth Publishing; 3 Edition - June 9, 2009

The Craft of Research
Booth, Wayne C., Colomb, Gregory G., & Williams, Joseph M.
Publisher: University Of Chicago Press; 3 Edition - April 15, 2008

And of course the infamous APA Manual 5th edition...but the 6th edition is available on the same day my class starts. But it is OK...Adapt, implement, and overcome...just reformat a template as required by the standards.
