Where can I get engineering books very cheap?

Asked Houston, Texas

Hello. My name is Michael and I am a first year engineering major. My plan is to go to A & M Galveston to major in Maritime Engineering with the licensing option. I am doing my homework right now. I have a list of books the Coast Guard gets their questions from. Anyway, is there any good resource for locating books for inexpensive prices? #engineering #university-teaching

Hi Michael,

If you are studying Engineering the best person you can buy books from is from the Seniors who completed the courses already who doesn't need the books anymore!

Thank you!

Depending on your personal moral code when it comes to downloading, this may not be an option for you, but it was quite common when I was in college to torrent the PDF files for text books for free off of the internet to cut costs from the ever increasing price of higher education in this country.

If this doesn't sit well with you, finding the books online via second-hand retailers is easily the cheapest option (to echo above statements, eBay and Amazon were the route I took).

Best, Flint

Try Amazon, ebay or your local student used book store.
