I'm in 7th grade, and to answer your question about the cost of the book I would go to textbookheaven.com Here is the link: http://www.textbookheaven.com/1992_merrill_pre_algebra_student_edition.html About the photos in the book, you are right that they are unnecesarry and quite irrelivant to the lesson, but it is not completely without an advantage. A book with no animation and plain text would seem unwelcoming to the student and maybe even boring. I beleive the pictures are put in the book in an effort to interest the student. Good luck! Eli
