Apologia Chemistry 2nd edition

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

I wanted to send out a notice for just this one book because of the dozens and dozens of requests I have had for it through September.  So if you are looking for the Apologia Chemistry 2nd edition text still, and would be ok with one in rough shape (half the book got wet and wrinkled)–it is $8.  Call if you would like it set aside for you.

Other notes:

All of the Life of Fred is gone now.

I got in some nice sets of the current edition Math U See Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and Geometry.

Also have one used copy of Apologia Marine Biology ($39)

Thanks!

Today we got in 5 student desk/chair sets in a variety of sizes. They are $10 each set. SOLD

Note about finding the store: The IPhone GPS is taking everyone to the wrong address. Mapquest, Google Maps and car GPS’s work fine. Please remember we are on Ridge Road, not East or West Ridge–they are not connected to our Ridge. Feel free to call for directions if you need them.

Please drop me an email if you are looking for curriculum. The consignments are flooding in right now!

SAT Prep and Jay Wile’s New Science

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

If you have a child preparing to take the SATs, we have the prep books for you! I have over 15 books from all the big publishers (College Board, Princeton Review, Barrons, Kaplan). These are the ones that are as fat as a phone book. The copyright dates range from 2005-2014 and are priced accordingly. The most expensive one is half off the retail price and they go down from there. 2005 was the last time the SAT was revised so all of these books are geared for the current test.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

We also have prep books for the CLEP, AP and the regular testing required for PA.

Jay Wile has just come out with the second book in his elementary science series, Science in the Ancient World. I have it in stock if you would like to see it.

Some housekeeping:

Kinderbach–If you consigned a set, please contact me. We have a set in the shop that has lost its consignment tag.

I am in need of plastic grocery bags, if you would like to recycle them with me.

I have bubble wrap, free for the taking. Just ask! I also have cardboard boxes accumulating out in front of the store. We will be burning them at the end of next week so come grab them if you need them (you don’t have to come during store hours for those).

 

Have a great day!
