I'm hoping I might be able to save some $ next semester by finding some of my husbands required texts here. The books he needs are:
Applying Cultural Anthropology: An Introductory Reader :: (edition 7)
Intro Stats & Mystatlab Student Access Kit, Richard De Veaux Edition 3
If anyone has a copy of any of these they would be willing to part with, please send me a PM. I'm not terribly picky about condition as long as they are readable and not growing anything.

As I told Stephanie, one should check Half.com for these and other textbooks. They have them often at half or less than the bookstore prices. You can sell them there when you get done ith them, too.
It would also be worth it to check to see how flexible you can be as to edition. How much has the book changed aince the last one? Does the professor assign and collect homework problems that aren't the same from edition to edition? If you e-mail the professors, they are often really open to you buying an earlier edition unless lots of stuff has been changed. That Applying Cultural Anthro book, for example, is all articles/chapters so it would be pretty easy to find out if the assigned articles are all in an earlier edition. I saved lots of money this way in undergrad, and most of my professors were reasonable and supportive. For example, by buying the 5th edition of my O-Chem book instead of the newest (6th), I saved about 75 dollars off the used price. You might even be more likely to find earlier editions on here, since they are woth much less to sell back to the bookstore or on Half.com (where many of my textbooks were aquired).
