I can't afford to pay for my college text books. What do I do?

Is there a way to get my books for free, because I can't pay for them?

Talk to your professors or see if your school has a rental program. Another option would be to make friends with someone in your class. Also your school may have a bulletin board online or off that you could post to asking if anyone will loan you their books.

When I went back to school recently, I bought the books each term and ended up not really needing them as the teachers handed out copies of their presentations from their lectures which were very thorough. I am sure this isn't the case for all schools or courses, but I bought a lot of books that I used mainly as a reference when something was not clear to me. Talk to your teachers first.

Get them used or second hand, usually in good condition and a whole lot cheaper. If not speak to administration or a professor.

You might be able to find your college text books on ebay.com or amazon.com for a much more reasonable price. That's how i get a lot of my books.

your a jerk...I'm a single mother, work full time, and go to school full time. I cant afford these books. Don't make some bullshit comment about other people, until you walked a day in their shoes. Use your brain....or else you don't belong in college.
