The Book Exchange Program provides students the opportunity to buy and sell previously used textbooks to other students.
Upper classmen are encouraged to use this forum to post information about the books they wish to sell to under classmen and other classmates. When posting, please provide the class, book, professor (if necessary), price, contact information and anything else that might be helpful for other students interested in buying your books.
Additionally, please delete your post or post a "reply" when the book is no longer available.
Finally, students wishing to purchase books from other students may reply to any post or use the contact information provided by the seller to get in contact with the other student.
