Get the ISBN Book number. When you find out what book you need, look at the back of it. On the little bar code you will see an ISBN number. Write this down or print it off.

Get on the computer and type the ISBN number in a search engine or on a business website such as Amazon or eBay.

Compare your prices. College text books that cost around $150 can be purchased for $10-$50. After you use it, you can sell it for a profit.

Look on your Colleges community board. Many students will sell used books for cheaper than the bookstore.

This is the CHEAPEST OPTION! Many Colleges will have copies of textbooks in the Library. You can sometimes check them out and continue using them or study and photo copy in the Library.
