How Can You Save Money on College Textbooks?

Arrive Early 1 of 9

If you want to walk away with all of your syllabus needs with the least amount of exertion, the campus bookstore is the way to go. Unfortunately, campus bookstore offerings will also cost you the collegiate equivalent of an arm and a leg.

One way to put a minor dent into that price tag is to get to the bookstore as early as possible and snatch up as many used offereings as you can get your hands on. Getting there first gives you the best opportunity to get your needs at the cheapest (a relative adjective here) price, before the sticker price gets jacked up.
