Aug 17, 2007
So you are ready for college! You are now about to embark on more intense years of studying and learning. You must be eager to experience college life.

Your college experience will surely be amazing and challenging because college years is a time try out new things and experience the wonders of life as a mature individual.

However, many students could not afford the expenses of college education. Aside from the high tuition fees, prices for college text books are at their peak. Many are discouraged and have second thoughts in pursuing a higher education because of this.

When you do not have enough money to buy college textbooks, then there are many options available for you. One best way on not spending money for a specific textbook is by sharing it with your fellow college student. How do you do it? Here are some tips.

1. You may find a classmate that patterns his study lessons opposite with your schedule. If you stay up late in the night, take the opportunity to use the book.

While he prefers to read and get all that he needs in the book in the morning, you may do other school works. In this way, you can maximize the book and save money.

2. You can also share when purchasing a number of old books to save more money. As you learn and progress through all your subjects, you will have the chance to study those in certain semesters and this again will give you an opportunity for sharing college text books.

3. Another option for you is to organize study lesson sessions with your fellow students. You will meet a lot of college students and take the opportunity to exchange college textbooks.

For sure, you would meet students who already have the books you need and you can swap your text books, which they may need.

4. You can save more money on used college textbooks. Many university and college bookstores offer a variety of college textbooks old students have sold or donated. You may save a hundreds of dollars if you choose to buy used college text books.

5. Look for bookstores that offer discounts and bargain sale for books that are frequently revised and reissued. You may also search for bulletin boards and look for cheaper textbooks. Students also earn by selling their used textbooks for a more reasonable price.

6. You may ask from some of your upperclassmen friends if they have the college textbooks you need. For sure they are more than willing to help you because they do know how heavy on the pockets it is on buying new textbooks.

Never forget to find ways on how to save money in college. Make friends and learn to swap before buying a new one.

Take care of your books and never write on them. You may sell them in the future and that could help you earn money while in school.
