I buy it off of Amazon. They have super fast delivery. I buy them new. So I can highlight on my own. I sell them to Bookholders (and if they sell them to low I get them back (before it gets sold) and just hold onto them and will probably sell them on amazon once I'm done in school in a few years).

Good day:

I'm going to be trying Amazon.com for renting a book (I should have it early next week); their rental price is more than 50% off the rental price of the campus book store. So that helps a lot. Though as a rental, I'm not going to be highlighting in it.

Thank you.

Amazon!!! Buy them, so you can sell them after and make some money back. Best time to look is at the end of the semester when everyone is selling theirs :)

Specializes in ER.

Half.com. I resell them when I'm done and practically break even, except for a few books that came out with newer editions while I was in nursing school. My edition of Iggy is now worth $5. :grumpy: I would actually lose money to ship it out! I wish I had sold it sooner, I didn't even open it during my last year of school.

Good day:

Do you have any tips on selling books (should I start a new thread)?

Thank you.

I buy my books brand new (or like new without handwritten notes and/or highlights) from eBay and/or Amazon. I don't like going to the campus bookstore because you'd spend an arm and a leg just to get your books. I don't rent any books in case I want to keep them for future reference.

Contact [email protected] I bought the 4books (Taylor and Llyns book) for only $50. So glad i found their account on instagram(textbookspdf_seller). It is a E-book, a Pdf format so it is printable. I plan to print important pages on the campus. I recommend you all to contact them asap if you still dont have the books and want a portable one.
