Top 10 Reasons why our University Bookstore is YOUR BEST place to shop
Spring 2017 Course Book List (link) includes all courses that have been submitted by college instructors as of 1/6/16. The list provides the Publisher's List Cost as well as University Bookstore's options available to DMC students:
- Used Book Purchases: Buying a Used Book, if/ when available, will save you money. However, some Used Book titles may be unavailable from suppliers. If a Used Book is not currently in stock at the Bookstore, our staff will check suppliers for you and if it is available can order and receive them for you. On the booklist 'Used' column, an "NA" indicates a used book is not available from suppliers.
- New Book Purchases: A students' BEST VALUE is often to purchase a new textbook, then at the end of the course, sell it back under the Bookstore's BuyBack program. The Book list shows the expected buyback price for each text and the resulting net cost to you is often the best deal. However, some texts have NA in the buyback program column, meaning the text is not currently eligible under the buyback program, typically because new editions are expected imminently, or when there's a low nationwide demand.
- TEXTBOOK RENTALS! Available in the University Bookstore for many titles... another way for students to SAVE while supporting Downstate. On the booklist 'Rent' column, an "NA" indicates the book is not available to rent from suppliers.
