So what can I do about paying for books? Is there a way to get used books cheaper..?
Check if your college bookstore sells secondhand copies. Mine used to, so if you get in quick you might get one as there will be limited copies. Also, look online. Former students may sells theirs online, even on Ebay. There may be other bookstores that sell the same book cheaper, and you may even find it's cheaper to order books from overseas (although this may not be the case if you're in the US, but as an Aussie, sometimes the same books were way more expensive here than the US).
Do you have to buy all the books at once? Or can you buy a semester's worth at a time? When you start college, you may meet students who have already done the subject, and may be willing to sell the book to you or even loan it to you.
