Should I rent or buy my books?
Rental is almost always the most affordable option for obtaining your textbooks. By going to Verba Compare you will be able to see what books Edgewood has for rent and compare their rental prices to other on-line retailers who rent textbooks.
Can I sell my books back at the end of the semester?
The Edgewood College Bookstore offers textbook buyback at the end of the first and second semesters during finals week. This is a great option for books you can’t rent or decided not to rent.
Is there a problem with buying my textbooks from online retailers?
There can be. Online retailers don’t guarantee supplementary materials like access codes that you might need for your course. In addition, you need to wait to get the book shipped to you and this can be problematic with Amazon Marketplace orders. Also, books do change from time to time so what you order on-line might not end up being the correct book for the class you are taking. If you purchase the book from the Edgewood College Bookstore you will be able to return the book for a full refund if the book changes for any reason. Please understand that the bookstore cannot accept returns from online retailers.
Can I return the book to the Edgewood College Bookstore if I buy or rent a textbook and then drop the class or change my schedule?
You may return any book for any reason to the bookstore up to a week after classes begin. Books must be in new condition and have no writing, bent corners or show any signs of wear.
