Q:

Where can you find solution manuals to college textbooks?

A:

Quick Answer

Solution manuals for some college textbooks can be obtained from the instructor of the course, the publisher of the textbook, the college library or an online resource center sponsored by the textbook publisher or instructor of the course. Many college instructors place a copy of the solutions manual for students to access on reserve in the math lab, writing center or science lab, depending on the type of class.

Full Answer

Most instructors or college librarians do not allow students to check out a solutions manual or take it off campus. Instead, students need to access it while on campus or at the library. In some cases, students may be able to obtain solutions manuals from students who have previously taken the course or from online sites that sell supplements to textbooks, such as Amazon or eBay.

Not all solution manuals for college textbooks are readily available to students. When requesting a manual from a textbook publisher, the student may need written approval from the instructor. Without this, the publisher may refuse to release the manual.

Instructors in need of a solutions manual can often request one from the department chair or directly from the publisher after providing credentials and proof that the textbook is being used in the course.
