Tip #2 Buy used books.
This is the most obvious and best way to knock 20-40 % off the retail price of textbooks.
The campus store has a large amount of used books that are in good condition. We do this through our buyback program as well as several used book companies. Because used copies sell the fastest, the earlier you purchase your books the more likely you are able to get a used copy.
You can see if a used book is available through our Online Textbook Ordering website.
Discussion: Where have you found used textbooks? How much money did you save?
