Going back to school? Need cheap textbooks and research access?

School semester is starting up soon and with it comes the preparation for the semester. Attending college, working toward my Bachelors degree in Information and Library Science, has shown me a few helpful tips along the way.

Textbooks:
Excellent deals on textbooks through Amazon up to 30% on the price of new textbooks and up to 90% on millions of used listings! And if I couldn't find the books I need there I would head to Half.com or campusi.com. I never went through the university for my books.

If you don't have a lot of money, consider trading in your unwanted gift cards for credit to Amazon through PlasticJungle.com where you can buy, sell and trade gift cards!What a great option to get rid of those unwanted gift cards and get something you need!


College is Hard - Research is Easy


Some classes demand knowledge at your fingertips and Questia provides that to students who don't have time to wait for the library. They have over 72,000 copyrighted books, over 2 million newspaper and journal articles, full text searching and reading, online note taking highlighting, quote/citation capability in several formats, and instant bibliography creation which can save so much time!


Good luck this semester!

  1. Textbooks can cost anywhere from $5 to $300, but the average new college textbook price is about $100. When you shop for cheap textbooks, you can drop that average down significantly with used books. In fact, the average price paid for a textbook is just $44 across our network of textbook sites.
