Book Buying Tips

  • Never buy a book (especially a used one!) until you've examined it to make sure it's in acceptable condition.
  • Never write, mark, or soil your new textbook(s) until:
    • you are sure you have the correct book(s)
    • you are sure your class won't be canceled
    • you are sure you won't drop (withdraw from) the course.
