Find the cheapest places to buy textbooks.
Textbooks are books that you are required to have for a course you are taking in school. It is very difficult to keep up with the rest of the class and the teacher if you do not have the textbook that you need.
The most expensive place you can buy a new textbook is the school bookstore. So you should try to get the book elsewhere first. You can go online and try to find a discount bookseller, and compare prices yourself. Check out places like Amazon for one, there are many that you will find on the net. Textbooks are very expensive, so it is worth your time to research for the best price.
Another option for you to purchase a new textbook is to check out an older edition. Sometimes the books are just reprinted because they need more of them. Other times there will be a few small changes that were made from one edition to the next. You should probably consult the teacher of the course, and they would most likely be able to tell you if the older edition would be good enough to use for the class.
There are also services on the net that will find the best deal on a new textbook for you. How it works is you give them the information about the textbook that you are looking for. They run the information through their system, which has many booksellers in it, and can then tell you where you can get the textbook you are looking for at the best price.
Remember that there are a lot of places to purchase new textbooks online and in person and it can really be worth your time to shop around. Even if money is not an issue for you, buying the book at the best possible price will leave you a few extra dollars that can be put toward something else.
