Update: Thanks to all the people who recomended the 1/2 price book sites, we found everything we needed for under 300 dollars, thank you all!

You aren't allowed to ask to jump spots on the WL.  Are you #1 on these?

As a suggestion, ask your library if they can interlibrary loan them from elsewhere, if they don't have them.    Just an alternative way to snag the books.

Good luck to your wife!

Half.com is another great resource for reduced price books.

Also try Abebooks.com.  I found one of the books you need for $11.00, while on Amazon it's listed as $65.00.  Not bad.

Alex, if you search for a book, it'll either say  Post This Book    or    Order This Book.    By it saying Post This Book, it's saying the book is not in the system and you can get in the WL line for it if you like.

www.cheapbooks.com is suppose to tell you the cheapest place to find a book

also www.bookfinder.com is a good place to find them if they aren't on here & you really need them
