Most tafe/unis allow access to databases (including emims) online from home which is very handy. Otherwise try your doctor's office for a paper copy. Good luck. It can be hard getting your hands on one.

Hi all- I bought a very recent one off Ebay last year, I think I paid around $15 including postage and it was brand new. Hope this helps! Lisa

Hey,

I was on ebay tonight and I saw quite a few " Mims" books for really reasonable prices. All recent editions too.
