If you are a poor, broke college student like the majority of college students are these days, then you need to get pretty creative about finding ways to acquire cheap college textbooks, materials, supplements, and softwear. You can try going on Craiglist and look for cheap books. Another great source of VERY cheap books for college is half.com, which is part of Ebay. You may also check around campus for flyers to see if any students are selling their old textbooks. Maybe some friends in the classes you need to take are willing to let you borrow their book for a semester. In your college’s library, there is generally a ‘reserve’ of many textbooks for popular courses.
