My advice on college books is, buy used when you can, and sell any book you won't possibly need again when you are done. Also, Amazon is a great place to buy college text books - much cheaper than college book stores and will ship them right to you door.

When my DH was in grad school, we got his books from:

a1books.com
ecampus.com
half.com
varsitybooks.com

If you google on "college textbooks sale" you can find tons of sites!

I will be teaching my kids A and P this year. I am using my college books from last year. We needed new study guides and I saved over $25 using ebay and half.com. Yeah!!
