Still looking for ways to save on your college texts? The website Lifehacker has a good article on saving money.
When I was in school, I found that Amazon.com usually had better prices for college texts than the campus bookstore.
Also, most schools have a “reserve” desk at its library where some professors will put the texts for their classes on hold for students to use. You can’t check the books out, but can make copies from them in case you have trouble getting the texts. Check with your school library, or your professor, to see if this service is available.
