How can I find out what books I need.
I just registered for community college and I’m not sure what books I’m going to need. I’m taking beginning math and beginning sign language. If I call the college, will they be able to tell me what books I am going to need for the classes? Or should I just wait until the first day of class for the...
email the prof if you know. Bookstores should have the list by now. However, Some profs may not use all the books on the list. I got an email about a book I need for one class. I buy most of mine online or check at half price for them.
HELP. How do I find out what books I will need for college… SERIOUS 10 POINTS.
My first day of college is coming up, and I have already registered for my classes. But I don’t know what books I am going to need. I would like to be prepared for my classes and have my books early, but I have no idea where I can find them. Is there a generic name tab to look for on my portal? Or is this…
Every professor at your college who is teaching this semester got a form months ago to fill out for each class he or she is teaching. The professor filled out the form with required and recommended books and other information and submitted it to the bookstore.You get a list of all your classes: the course number (which will look something like “ENG 102”), the section number (which will look something like “03”), and the professor’s surname (if it says “TBA” that means “To Be Announced” and you can take that instead). Go to the school bookstore, either the physical store or the website.If students can access the physical stacks in the bookstore, you can go through there and find the section for each department, and then find the section within the departmental section for the course number, and then find the right section number. Double-check that you’re looking at the right section by making sure the professor’s name matches. If you can’t access the physical stacks, you’re going to need to enlist the help of someone who works there, but they should still be able to give you the information you need.If you choose to go online, you will click on a link for “Buy books” or something similar, and there will be a page with menus to select classes, again, by department, course number, and section number (if there’s only one section, they’ll usually omit that). When you have selected all your classes, you’ll hit a button with something like “Find books” on it, and you’ll get a page with the book assignments for all of your classes.You will need the required books. It’s up to you whether or not you want to buy the recommended books, if there even are any — I’d suggest waiting to buy them until after your first class, when the professor is likely to explain why she assigned any recommended books. Occasionally a class will have no required books at all.If you want to buy the books from the bookstore, you just go ahead and do that. It’s the most convenient way. However, you’re probably going to pay significantly higher prices than you would online, especially for books that are a few years old so that a lot of used copies are for sale. If you want to buy online, you write down the author, title, edition number, and ISBN. The ISBN is a 10- or 13-digit number that is unique to each book and edition number. Make sure you get the ISBNs copied down accurately, especially if you’ve gone to the physical bookstore.Then you start searching for the right books online, for a price you’re willing to pay, from a seller close enough to you and that offers the right shipping option(s) to get you the books by the time you need them. If you’re in Florida, for instance, a copy from South Carolina is likely to get there faster than a copy from Vermont, if the two sellers use the same shipping method. Use the ISBNs to find them, because you won’t have to worry about making sure you have the right edition number or whether a book by Johnson, Smith, and Jones is the same as the one when the bookstore lists the author as “JOHNSO.” If you got the information online, you can just copy and paste the ISBNs into the search fields at a search engine or a bookseller’s site and not have to worry that you’ve typed it in wrong. Use the author, title, and edition that you got from the bookstore to double-check that you’ve got the right book, but if you’re using the right ISBN, it always will be. And then once you find a copy of each book that you’re willing to buy, you buy it.You can also rent books, possibly from the school bookstore or definitely from some of the online sites like Chegg.com.I hope that that helps.

CUNY: How do I find out what books i need.
okay, so I need help finding out what my books for my classes are. I am an entering freshman for this fall but, I just can’t find it. Does anyone who goes to CUNY know where I can find it. btw I’m going city college. Thanks in advance.
I’ve never been to that school, but I’d imagine like any other college they have a bookstore on campus. You can find their information online and then ask them about what books you need for X class. Buying books from Amazon is always infinitely cheaper than buying them from the bookstore (anticipate $150ish/book). Buying used is cheaper than buying new (Expect $80ish/book). Some classes don’t even use the book that is assigned which is the biggest waste of money so perhaps you can go to ratemyprofessor.com and see if that sort of thing is mentioned (assuming you know who the professor is).
How do I know what textbooks I need for my college classes.
I’ve already got my schedule ready for the semester. I have Eng 103, Soc 101, ISP 120, and Discover Chicago. However, my schedule doesn’t say what books I actually need for the classes. How do I find out this information?
One of two ways usually:1-take your schedule to the school bookstore and make sure you know the specific section of the course you are in. For example, you may have Eng 103-01 or Soc 101-04. The section indicates what class you are in and what professor is teaching the class. Sometimes each section requires different books so it is very important to know this information. The way it worked in my school was the books at the bookstore were organized by course name and number and then by section, so you’d just find your books that way.2-The other option is to just wait until you get to class and the books you need will be listed on the professor’s course syllabus. From experience, I have noticed that sometimes a professor will list a book as required before you get to class (because they submit their book lists way before the start of the term), however once you get to class they may decide that a certain book is either only for reference or supplemental material or sometimes not needed at all.It is important to note a few things in regards to textbooks:Full title of the book(s)Author and or publisher of the book(s)Year publishedEdition (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc).Another important piece of information you may want to get is the ISBN number. This is a universal coding system for all books (not just college texts). It is usually on a bar code on the back of the book. It will definitely be useful if you want to purchase textbooks either online or at a place other than the college bookstore (which is highly recommended if you want to try to save some money). Also, sometimes campus books stores do run out of textbooks for a specific course and they have to be reordered, so this may be a good time if that happens to look into alternate sources of finding the book. This is especially important in reading intensive courses.
How do I find out what college books I need before I start the class.
I’m going to start college in fall and we haven’t chosen our classes yet. I know I’m going to take bio 100A from CSULA and was wondering what book I’ll be needing for that class.
Colleges usually have orientation before class starts. At orientation they usually help you register for classes. You don’t buy books for classes before you get the class.

This really confused me when I was starting out in college last year (I’m a sophomore now). After two semesters now of using books – I can help!Your school campus bookstore will have every book you need. Bring an employee your class list with all the information (class ID number, etc) so that they can find the exact book you’ll be looking for. The list of your classes should be very detailed – with your teacher’s name included, because some teachers for a subject may want more or less than others for a class – you don’t want to get stuck without the right book, or have paid for a book you didn’t need.Your school or school bookstore may even have an internet site you can plug your classes into to see what books you need for which classes and provide an opportunity for you to purchase them online.EXPERT TIP! Figure out what books you need a little earlier than the first couple days before classes – then see if there may be other bookstores unaffliated with your school in the area that will sell you the books you need for much cheaper!Also, try going to half.ebay.com to get your books for even less!Good luck, and enjoy your freshman year!
how do I find out what books in need for my classes.
college courses–I have no idea how to find out which books I need.
1. On the first day of class, your professor will give you a syllabus. This document includes important information, like the test schedule, the grading, and the required and recommended books..2. At your campus bookstore, they should have textbooks organized by class, and it might say whether they are required or recommended. However, the bookstore might say a book is required but your professor could say it is actually optional.3. If your professor or class has a website, the books could be on there.

How do I find out what text books I need for my classes.
I’m about to start my Freshman year at college…and I know every school is different. Generally though, how do students find out what their text books are for their classes? Is it usually posted online? Do professors send out a mass e-mail with requirements? I’m just a little concerned being that I…
Check the bookstore website. You should be able to put in your course numbers and the required textbooks will come up. Campus bookstores are required by law to make this information available so students can shop around.If you check Y!A, you will find that there are multiple schools of thought about purchasing textbooks before the first day of class. Apparently some professors put books on the list that they don’t intend to use, so some students wait to see which texts will be required before buying anything. However, at my school we had reading assignments to prepare for the first day of class and showing up without a textbook or the reading completed would have been a really good way to make a very bad impression. So you might want to get a feel for how things work at your school so you know whether to buy the books ahead of time or not.
