Pay full price instead of used to buy, they won't even resell at wholesale, because next year they're gonna order the new edition. Unless they're not, in which case they'll scam you by offering to take it back, then selling at used prices. I got "water damage" (a few raindrops on a page giving slight off-color) and they told me they couldn't give me any money back for mine.

    Amazon used. And pray to hell that the books don't come in late.
    The school do reuse the same books for the next year, so better to buy cheap because if they do return you can resell it. But for example you bought it at an expensive price, and you figured out that they do not use them anymore. Waste of cash

    always buy used when possible, bulma

    the resale on a 2nd time used is about the same as a 1st time used

    Not necessarily, used books may have been written on/highlighted and new books doesn't.

    Private schools have to buy their own text books. Cost about 175$ for the five I bought so far.

    I had to buy my own books for high school too. Most private schools do this because a) they often use newer editions of text books and b) they don't receive much state funding.

    Also, Kag, what I'm saying is that it doesn't matter HOW many times a book has been used. All that matters is quality. A "good" quality book that's been used 12 times will sell at the same price as another "good" quality book that's been used just once. Even if you end up with a crap quality used book and sell for very little (or none), it'll probably still be cheaper than buying a new one and reselling at a standard used price.
