Senior Secret Spiller: College Textbooks, Part 1

This is my last semester at Muskingum and I feel that it is time to spill my secrets and tips.

Senior Secret Spiller of the Day:

    College Textbooks 

    #1: Buying textbooks at the University bookstore should be used as a LAST RESORT only!

    #2: Look for the book at the public library or campus library FIRST (just don’t forget to renew them)

    #3: Ask friends, former classmates, Facebook friends, siblings, etc. if they have the book you are looking for (either ask to borrow it OR buy it off them for cheap)

    #4: Ask the professor if an older edition is acceptable to use (older editions are always cheaper and usually contain the SAME information as the newest edition)

    #5: amazon.com works for buying books, but half.com has ALWAYS been cheaper for me (but always check both)

    Getting textbooks in the mail = fun, smart, and cheap!

    #6: Paying for shipping is worth it!

    #7: Textbook rentals (like chegg.com) seem like a rip-off to me. I’m sure you could just BUY IT cheaper.
