Textbooks, depending on your major, can be pretty expensive (they can range anywhere from $50-$300 per semester). If you absolutely need to purchase a textbook for a class, then a good tip to save money would be to rent the book or purchase it used. New textbooks may look nicer, but they will cost you and you will probably only use them for one semester. For rentals and used books, I recommend checking Amazon.com, your bookstore, and local bookstores.
You can even check to see if your school or local library will let you borrow the book for a certain amount of time. Overall, don’t waste that precious extra cash on brand new textbooks.
