    Texas Penal and Vehicle code books

    I am a Police Officer in California. I am going to be studying Texas law here shortly to complete the supplemental course and take the TCLEOSE test. Any advice on who has the best penal and vehicle code books? I am looking for both the full size Code of Criminal Procedure as well as the Vehicle Code. Also, does anyone sell the smaller ticket book size editions of each book?

    I got one of these in my Academy, and it's very handy. It's got a nice quick look up feature in the back if you know the offense and need to look up the exact statute.
