I once went four semesters without buying any textbooks at all. Check the campus library. They usually have a copy on hold. You can’t check it out, but it’s there. Also great for novels in that survey of fiction class.

Also, they’ll usually keep at least one copy in the bookstore for most, if not all of the semester.

I passed Econ 101 by reading the chapters once a week in the aisle of the bookstore. I saved like 80 bucks on that book alone. That’s economics for you, right there.

1. The Flogsta Scream is real.
