Early Editions




Using earlier editions can save you more than 80% on textbooks!


How do I know an early edition will work for my class? 

In most cases, students report complete success. Occasionally, the publishers' update may include different page numbers, rearranged variations of the title, rearranged author names, new author names, author nicknames, and brand new special cover photos.  But the simple fact is. changes are normally insignificant and any minor inconveniences caused by page numbering are still worth the tremendous savings.  Nevertheless, we are always here to assist you should have any questions.

Do you sell international versions?

No. These are often cheap, and sometimes illegal photocopies stuffed in a binder somewhere in asia. 

My class will not start until weeks from now.  What if I cancel my course?
