Textbook Ordering Directions

Buying Tip: We strongly recommend buying the books required for your courses at the beginning of the semester. Availability can become a concern as the semester progresses. Early buyers have the best opportunity to secure lower prices on used books. Overstock books are returned to wholesale suppliers and publishers at the end of the official book sales period, so to avoid out-of-stock concerns, shop early!
