Best place to buy Nursing books?

  1. Excelsior recommends books to help you with their exams. I was wondering where might be some of the cheapest places to buy them new. (don't really want someone else's highlighting) or used if not marked in?
    a few I'm interested in are
    Nursing Diagnosis: Application to Clinical Practice
    Nursing Process: A Critical Thinking Approach
    Wong's Essentials of Pediatric Nursing

    TIA!

    I highly recommend www.half.com - you can find some great new and used books on there, + you can see feedback that buyers have left sellers, exc.
    I actually sell a lot of my old nursing books that I dont need on half.com - its a good way to make some extra money after spending so much on the books!

    Hello, I bought a few books at www.discountmedicalbooks.com. THey offer free UPS shipping if you spend over $100 as well an extra discount for paying by check. They are new books. EVen by paying by check I had the books in less than a week. I mailed the check Thursday and by Weds. the books were here. Good luck!

    Amazon is good, too. Not the new books, but their used books. I've gotten some great deals there.

    Definately AMAZON. I used them for most of my books and saved a mint. I just bought used books, no need to buy new ones, plus all the highlighting was done for me lol
