I’m a senior at Cal State Fullerton
(and a mom of 3 one of which starts college in the fall)…
As a history major, I have an absolute TON
of books. I buy most of my books online a places like half.com (which is part
of ebay), Amazon.com, and other textbook places. All you have to do is google “cheap
textbooks” and tons of sites will pop up.
It takes some effort to shop
around on them, and you have to figure in shipping time and costs. Sometimes
it takes up to 2 weeks to get the books, plus shipping (these suckers ain’t
lightweight). But you can find really good deals.
If his classes or bookstore
will give him the ISBN numbers, you can start shopping right away. However,
they usually don’t put that stuff out until near the end of summer.
Also, some campus bookstores will do price matching if it’ not off a site
like half.com. So shop around and have fun.
I’m just glad I’m
done doing my stuff!
