Anyone know of any sites of textbook steals?
Anyone have any others?
and check the on-campus used book store.
Good luck finding cheap books.
Well, if you are like how I was in college, you won't actually read the books so save the money and use it to buy some beer!!!
Unfortunately...I'm already paying nearly $20,000 USD this year for tuition and living costs. So I'm buying books.
And if I don't hit the books...I'll be paying more next year. Stupid 3.0 Scholarship Demands.
Upperclassmen. Get to know some people in your major/sequence and see if you can't borrow/by cheaply.
I'll second katie's half.com. I love it.
(Though, my University has text rental, so I don't have to buy the majority of my books. I pity da fool.)
It will find the deals for you, and if you go to UMR (I think there's one other UMR student besides me here, so that probably doesn't apply to you ), UMKC, Mizzou, Truman or one of the STL community colleges, it will even tell you what books you need
these site are pretty cool
might also try www.pickaprof.com
i know people can sell textbooks on there as well
maybe craigslist, who knows
but i need to get hooked up on these deals as well
oh yeah.. and check out some facebook groups on campus. People sell books there all the time.
ah facebook, good ole facebook, so addicting
Amazon.com has been good to me. Usually I get a good $20 to $50 off my books and then sell them the second I get my grades.
The problem is that either way my books are about $200 a pop so I'm still paying $100 - $150 per book x 3 books...it sucks.
it does.....very much
when i am out 500 for books, that is so sad
yeah, thats a good idea
I'm glad I'm majoring in an art. My film books are ~$20 each.
Guys in my frat used to save books all the time to pass them on to other guys taking those classes later. Especially all the gen ed classes. It was always nice when you could borrow a book for free.
