DavidGreen Target yourself to pay less than half of the college‘s bookstore price.  Key: Buy your textbookcom book  through a site for and additional 4% savings.  Proviso: Timed use-passworded CD companions to your text book  and precise textbook version are a challenge.  DO NOT ASSUME YOU KNOW, VERIFY.

Save an additional 10% by selling that same textbook back to textbookcom

Other options

  1. Post notices on the school’s bulletin board
  2. How about renting from (don’t forget the shipping costs)  and where you can get a book from a student from the previous semester from the same professor.  Added bonus: get all the insight you can glean about the course from the book’s owner.

    Personally, to combat high textbook prices I use They are a textbook search engine that searches all the online textbook retailers (including amazon, half, ebay etc) and rental sites (including chegg, bookrenter etc) to find you the best prices. You can even use them at the end of the semester to search for resellers to sell your books to.
