International Students Information Guide: Buying Textbooks

Tips for Buying Textbooks

  • Look at more than the title and author on your syllabus when searching for a textbook.
    • Make sure you have the correct edition, there are updates between editions.
    • Use the ISBN to search the websites on the right to get the correct book.
      • ex: 978-0000012123
  • You can rent or own the book; check out the pricing for both options to see which is more affordable.
  • Look at multiple websites to get the best price.
  • The Library will most likely NOT have your textbook.
