When do you find out what textbooks are needed for classes.
I am going to be a freshman in college and i start in 4 weeks,i need to know how to find out what textbooks i need for my classes so i can search around for the cheapest prices.can anyone help me?!!?
Your college bookstore is the best resource to use to collect the information. They are one of only a few select places that you will be able to see by class what books you need without having to wait until the first day of class. The key to saving money is to use your bookstores as a library.Go to the bookstore.See what books you needWrite down the ISBN (you will see two on most books but only one is needed)Go to a price comparison site such as www.campusbooks.comdo a search for the booksbuy the condition you feel most comfortable withIf you are concerned that your books may not arrive in time you can always purchase your books from the bookstore. In many cases they will let you use the book for two weeks before a return is required.But….Make sure you understand the return policy. For instance, in many cases if you buy a new book you can not remove it from the wrapper or they may require an add/drop fourm to process the return.The other option to finding the book information is to contact your professor prior to class. If should be pretty easy to find their email address on the department website. Many professors will post the required reading on a class website too.When contacting the professor be sure to ask them if an older version will work or if all the components of the book are truly required. Sometime you can find the same book without CD or online access code for a lot less.Saving money on textbooks takes a bit of time but it can be really rewarding.
College ID and Books question.
I’m starting classes at the Community College mid August. When do I get my college ID card and how do I know what books I need to get for each of the classes I am enrolled in?Thanks
You have three options:1) Wait for the first day of class and the required books will be listed on the syllabus.2) Go to your campus bookstore. They should have textbooks organized by subject and by class. You can also ask someone that works there where to find your books if you know your which classes you’re taking.3) Visit your campus bookstore’s website. There you can probably find the required books for your classes after searching for your school and finding your class by course number.

Take your class schedule to your school’s book store and the clerks can explain how you to find your books. I know how that goes starting college can be a little scary. Good luck with school! I hope you do well!
when you get your course schedule for college, how do you find out what books you need to buy.
I know this is a dumb question, but I’d rather look dumb here then show up at the student bookstore with my course schedule and be like I need books for these classes and there like….well which books? Or do they already know for the classes I’m taking. Also there’s nowhere in Delaware to buy used…
At a small college, if you were to go took the bookstore with your class schedule, they would know which books to give you. But if you are talking about a major university, you would find out from your professor. Usually it will be listed in the syllabus , and the professor will most likely mention it the first day of class.If you want to buy the books early, you could e-mail your professor and ask them to tell you what books you will need for their class. If you explain you can get the books at a more affordable price if you buy early, they most likely would tell you. Some professors enjoy being evil, but dealing with them is no different than dealing with human beings in general.
How do I figure out what books I need for my college classes.
I feel really dumb asking this question because my guidance counselor showed me how to determine what books I would need, but I completely forgot how to. I have my schedule and understand the class name and number, but can not for the life of me figure out which books I need! I want to buy my books online to save…
First step is definitely to go to the bookstore at your college. They’ll have all that information for you and they may even have a web page that you can use to look that stuff up at home and they’ll show you all that. Just let them know that you need a little bit of help, and they’ll help you print out a book list and all that.The next thing you’ll want to do is to go around the book store and actually look at the books see what it is. Is it a packaged set? Is it just a textbook. Sometimes books will come in a package with an online access code that you need for the class. Sometimes they’ll come in a package with supplemental materials. Unfortunately sometimes the professor will require you to buy the package and a lot of the time the publisher will put together a special package with it’s own ISBN number for that package that you can’t get anywhere else.So go around and take a look at what you need. If you just need a single textbook with no access codes or anything you’ll be fine to buy it online. But if you need the codes or a special book package you’ll want to buy it in the store. Many times you’ll find the textbook cheaper online but if you end up needing the codes you’ll pay an arm and a leg for them and lose all the money you saved anyways
How do I know what books I need for my classes next year.
I go to CUBoulder and the books for Fall 2012 aren’t listed yet on the bookstore website, so how can I know what books I need?
You may have to wait until a few weeks before school starts to get your books. Most college bookstores will sell the books required by the professor that teaches each class. So which books you have to buy depends on which classes you take and who is teaching the section that you are enrolled in. So you have to go to the bookstore to determine which books are required, or maybe they will put it on the website sometime closer to the start of the fall term. Most college students do not buy books until just before the semester starts.
How do I know what textbooks I need for my college classes.
I’ve already got my schedule ready for the semester. I have Eng 103, Soc 101, ISP 120, and Discover Chicago. However, my schedule doesn’t say what books I actually need for the classes. How do I find out this information?
One of two ways usually:1-take your schedule to the school bookstore and make sure you know the specific section of the course you are in. For example, you may have Eng 103-01 or Soc 101-04. The section indicates what class you are in and what professor is teaching the class. Sometimes each section requires different books so it is very important to know this information. The way it worked in my school was the books at the bookstore were organized by course name and number and then by section, so you’d just find your books that way.2-The other option is to just wait until you get to class and the books you need will be listed on the professor’s course syllabus. From experience, I have noticed that sometimes a professor will list a book as required before you get to class (because they submit their book lists way before the start of the term), however once you get to class they may decide that a certain book is either only for reference or supplemental material or sometimes not needed at all.It is important to note a few things in regards to textbooks:Full title of the book(s)Author and or publisher of the book(s)Year publishedEdition (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc).Another important piece of information you may want to get is the ISBN number. This is a universal coding system for all books (not just college texts). It is usually on a bar code on the back of the book. It will definitely be useful if you want to purchase textbooks either online or at a place other than the college bookstore (which is highly recommended if you want to try to save some money). Also, sometimes campus books stores do run out of textbooks for a specific course and they have to be reordered, so this may be a good time if that happens to look into alternate sources of finding the book. This is especially important in reading intensive courses.
How do you find out what books you’ll need for classes in college.
This probably sounds stupid but I’m kinda confused. They told us at Orientation that it was ok to wait until the first day but I don’t wanna do that. How would we even find out what books we need? There’s no list, no class description, nothing. So yeah, I’m kinda confused.
Well, you could go to your campus bookstore with a copy of your course schedule and ask if they have the books for your courses available yet. You could also email the professors and ask if they have decided on what books will be required for the course and if they could let you know so you can buy them early (trust me, most professors have to fight with students who don’t want to buy the books at all — you’ll be a breath of fresh air to them). Or you can just wait until the first day of class when you get the syllabus, which should have a list of all required course materials within the first couple of pages.

The book you need is not somehow encoded in the information you provided; however, your school’s bookstore probably has a website where you can check to see what books you need for your classes (and then buy them at jacked-up prices – look on Amazon or Chegg or Half.com or some other alternative to buying your books from the on-campus store, it’ll save you hundreds).
