So I’m still excited about school. I have said it before I feel like a freshman in college again but I’m not! Anyways, I will be giving some school tips this week because of my school excitement.
The years in college have given me wisdom young ones and I aim to share! Enjoy!
Uno (1): TEXTBOOKS
I have learned that Amazon can be your best friend. I found one of my textbook this year for $4! Amazon is not the only online store where you can buy books. Check others for some sweet deals.
I am not saying, don’t go to your campus bookstore. I am just saying if you want to save some green check both place, sometimes the campus bookstore has some deals on books. Not to mention you can get the book right then and there. Another plus is campus goodies!
Used books are gold!
If you do buy from a physical store used books can be really helpful! Plus, it’s cheaper! Some used textbooks have notes and highlights that can help you focus on what parts really need attention. The notes can help you understand a concept better. I know that sometimes having something explained a different way can make a big difference. So go ahead a look through the book first and get a feel for the notes. If you don’t like the notes, grab or ask for a different copy. Ain’t no shame in trying to excel!
If your not about the used book life then grab a new one and help someone else out with your notes when you sell it back!
(Dang this post is long! I am almost done, I swear.)
Last but not least Sell Back!
Go ahead and sell your books when you are done. It gives you some cash. I know that by the end of the semester I was hurting for money and sell back money helped out. Make sure that you are getting your money worth!
Keep them if a course is a conjunction with another course. For example: here there were 2 required English classes that was separated by semester that used the same book). Or keep them of you failed a class and plan on retaking it. Sometimes it happens.
Okay, so I think that about wraps up textbooks. Wow, I can’t believe I just did that. I’ll keep you posted on other tips.
