Not only collage but some high schools are now requiring
reading of outside materials. Students may also need to order special
materials for honors and advanced placement classes. Used text books can result in a big savings. Using a book
service, such as AbeBooks can save students even more money. Money for food,
movies and life in general.
Use the links below to search for your books. Remember to ask your
instructor if there is a specific edition (or check the edition in your
school's book store) so that you get exactly what they want for the
class. One way to be positive of selecting the right book for your
classes is to copy down the International Standard Book Number or ISBN
from the book the instructor wants you to use, look on the back cover
and inside near where the copyright © information is found. Do not
on a number given to you by someone else, or found on the shelf in the
book store - sometimes these can be wrong. The exception is when the
instructor gives you a handout with the number, and if his number does
not match those on the books in the book store ask him about it before
making a purchase. In most cases the edition is not crucial for works
of fiction that you are assigned to read, but it never hurts to ask if
its OK to get any edition.
Sometimes classmates, or mail sources will have used books heavily marked
that propose to give you the advantage of having what is important to
the class underlined. Don't trust these, they can be unreliable and if
you rely on these you might lower your grade. (How do you know the
person who marked up the book made a good grade? If they did make the
grade in the class how do you know how much their outside reading
contributed?) This does not mean that you have to reject any book
marked in but that you still need to do your own reading and
in the text.
While used books can save you some big bucks remember to get the book
the instructor wants.
