Did you know that you can save money by buying international edition textbooks?
Savvy students know a few tricks when it comes to scoring deals on textbooks. The first is to check the library. The second is to buy the international version of the textbook.
It’s the same book (in most cases) and much cheaper than buying the US version of the textbook. International editions, while cheaply made, can be purchased for a much more affordable price.
What are International Edition Textbooks?
Essentially, they are textbooks that have been published at a lower production cost for sale in foreign countries. They’re often softcover books, printed in black and white on cheap quality paper, and may not include supplementary material, such as CDs. Most have a label saying “International Student Edition” and “Not for sale in the US or Canada”.
