    Have you ever tried Amazon.com? My wife orders all of hers used and so far we have been lucky and saved money.

    I need to look yet. They didn't give me a list of books to buy, they said I had to print out my schedule and take it in and had to buy the books from their book store. Now that I know what books I need, I will look online and order them if I find them. I will then return the books that I just bought lol. How long does it usually take to ship books? I need them by next monday

    I feel your pain. Engineering books for a 5 year program....I had one book that was $156.....used it for 1 quarter (not even a semester!), to top it off, the bookstore wouldn't even buy it back since a new edition was coming out....bastards!

    My college rigged books so that you HAVE to by them from the school. Programs for your computers with Certain codes you can only get with Their books. Ridiculous.

    I still have most of my books from college.
    Yes you can buy them used and you can also sell them after you graduate if you so choose. There are textbook websites out there that buy back books.
