  • I use Amazon or I also post lists of the books I'm needing around campus with my phone number, and check out the flyers people put up of the books they're selling. You can get books pretty cheap that way, plus meet people to ask questions about the class!

  • I got all my college text books from Amazon and our school had a portal that searched all the websites for the best deals on books since we don't have a bookstore.

  • I know I all ready told you this, but I check there first for all my books and have NEVER been able to beat the prices they find searching on my own. I got my psych book ($75 at the bookstore) for $33 brand new.

    That's where a friend of mine buys all of her text books. A lot of the campus book stores also sell used books as well.
