CAMPUS STORE RIPOFF:
Each new semester gives you a Course Syllabus listing
all the books you are “Required” to BUY plus an additional
list of recommended books to buy.

Once you are done with a textbook what can you do with it? Well if you want to get ripped off just go to your college book store and get back enough money to buy a stick of gum.

VALORE BOOKS is one source that has a reputation for paying the highest buyback prices,
so you might want to check them out.
