Purchasing Textbooks

It is recommended that you purchase your textbooks from Amazon – you will see titles, prices, and availability of both new and used textbooks required to complete the Project assignments required in your courses. There are many online sources for these books. You are not required to buy your books from Amazon. Do your research; decide on the titles for each course; locate the source which is the quickest and least expensive. Then make your purchase one course at a time. (You should not purchase books for more than one course at a time.)
