    you can also go to www.textbooks.com
    I think it is run by Barnes and Noble, the prices are pretty much the same as Amazon and the others.

    Yeah, I've had financial aid problems here too.
    Not to mention the rant I wrote in my blog about the campus bookstore yesterday.

    I've always ordered textbooks from Amazon and have had no problems yet *knock on wood*. In fact, I just placed an order today - also went ahead and picked up a couple of Echo Heron's books and some others that had been on my wishlist for a while.

    I've also sold my used textbooks thru Amazon (pretty good luck there so far), and textbuyer.com (convenient for a quick $ fix, if they'll take the book)

    oh and I forgot to add, I got a 10% discount from the publisher so all told, I saved almost $150 by not going to the bookstore.

    Half.com is the best! I've bought all of my book sfrom there. I can get brand new books for quite a bit less than the used ones in the bookstore. My A&P book was $160 (used) in the bookstore and I got it from half for 70 bucks brand new !! It's great!
