Just bought my textbooks - a mini-grumbling session - Page 3Register Today!
- May 14 by happyhousewifeWhere do you look to find free digital copies of textbooks? I've always had to buy them electronically and they STILL seem to be quite expensive (Biochem $150).
- May 14 by KelRN215In the future, buy textbooks online at a site like half.com and then sell them back when you're done with them. You can more or less break even. I even made some money off a few books in school.
- May 14 by ConstanceahillI rented my pre req books except for my anatomy stuff as I heard they will be useful for med surg. However, we reuse a lot of our text books so it would be too much trouble for me and more costly to rent the same books each semester.
They give use new supplies to use so luckily we don't have to buy our stuff in kits.
I never buy from the book store because I found amazon is at least 30 cheaper and that is just for new books. Prime membership gives you two day free shipping too!
Good luck in school!
- May 14 by SWM2009Quote from nekozukiYep...many of my courses have an online assignment component (Prep U) that goes along with the book. Even if you buy the book used or rent it, you still need to pony up extra bucks for the online access.Ugh, and editions update so fast you can barely resell before they are irrelevent! What's worse is that many courses now require you to have online access, so any used book doesn't include a new activation code! My wallet weeps!

I have found some books there very cheap and they ship fast. But you have to be quick! They go fast.
- May 14 by zoe92Try bigwords.com, you type in the ISBN, title, or author & it provides you with cheapest prices from all sites (amazon, chegg, bookbyte, etc.) It saves you from having to search & compare.
- May 15 by CLUVLPNThank God my books are included in my tuition
