Used College Textbook Tips
Used Textbooks are cheaper - no shocker here, 80% of college
textbooks sold each year are used textbooks but here are some
Make sure the used textbook you are looking at is the correct version
or release; use the ISBN to verify. Check out the college bookstore;
they may not have the best prices on used textbooks but there is no
shipping charges or time delays. The bookstore is also where you can
confirm the ISBN.
Check with your professor if an older version of the textbook is OK.
It could be as much as ½ the price of the latest version of the
used textbook. Don't go back more than one edition. Use the index to
find the information in your previous edition when the instructors
tell the students with the new (expensive) book what pages to read.
There is no suggested retail price on used textbooks so shop around
but used textbook inventories change quickly, use a real-time quick
comparison tool like Cheap-Textbooks.com
Buying from individuals on marketplaces like Amazon
Marketplace and Half.com
may be cheapest but look at the location of the seller and shipping
methods offered. Media Mail can take two weeks from coast to coast.
Follow up after the purchase to make sure it has been shipped.
Check the bulletin boards at school for used book ads or buy used
books from students in the classes ahead of you. Watch for used
textbook exchange parties.
