When buying textbooks, here are a few tips you might want to keep in mind.
1. If classes have not started yet, you can visit the bookstore to check out what textbooks your professor might be using. By doing so, you can start comparing prices with websites or other bookstores.
2. There are some professors who will email you the syllabus for which then you can use to see if you are going to be using the textbook for a short period of time. The syllabus might also tell you if your professor is going to be putting a book on reserve at your school's library.
3. Is your English class requiring you to purchase a literature book? You might want to check your local library to see if they have a copy of it. Not quite sure what library has it? Go to Worldcat.org
to search up your book!
4. You will find students around the bookstore or even inside trying to sell their old textbooks. Sometimes students post flyers around campus informing students what textbooks they are selling along with their phone nuber to contact them.
Here are a few sites you might want to check out too! Some of these websites give you the option to purchase,borrow or upload a digital copy of the book.
