Q:What information can you give me on buying textbooks?

Text Books

Be sure to purchase your text books used. Shop early to find the best selection. Also look into seeing if there are any off campus bookstores, they sometimes provide books at a lower cost. If you are lucky, your scholarship or loan will pick up the cost of books. However, even if your books are paid for, you should still try to find the lowest price so that you can keep the left over money. At the end of the semester...sell it back to the bookstore.

GDon't Go Crazy Buying Books

Most bookstores have a list of the books your professors want you to have for class. Usually, there will be some books that are required and others that are recommended. In most cases, you do not have to buy the recommended books. Not only are they unnecessary to do well in the class, you probably won't have the time to read them.

Selling Back Books

While selling back books at the end of the semester may be a good way to get some extra money, don't sell back the books that provide information relevant to your major and/or future career. You can probably use these books for reference and guidance, and some of the books may be required in future classes. Besides, the bookstore probably won't give you back nearly as much as you paid for the book, so it may be more worthwhile to keep it.
