Textbook Tips #1

College textbooks are not cheap. Students spend a national average of $1,200 a year on textbooks and class supplies.  Since most college students are on a shoestring budget it is extremely important to be wise in your textbook purchasing habits. Over the next couple weeks we will be posting a series of “Tips For Buying Textbooks.” Here’s the first one. 

Tip #1: Find out what is required.

Find out if you need to take the textbook to the class routinely. Does it need to be in a certain condition? If you only need it for supplemental ready you may be able to use a copy from the library, borrow it from a friend, or use an electronic version of it.

What advice would you give a freshmen about taking books to class?
