Using Online Retailers
Why is it risky to order my course materials from online retailers?
There are multiple reasons:
|1. Online retailers might ship the incorrect edition specified by your instructor.|
|2. There can be shipment delays that can cause you to fall behind in your courses.|
|3. Some online retailers charge the full purchase price to buy out a textbook rental that you want to keep, lost, or damaged while other companies (City College Bookstore) allow you to apply the rental price as a credit toward the purchase.|
|4. The majority of textbook rental sites display textbook rentals for packages/bundles that are missing required components like access codes that result in you spending more money to purchase the missing component(s).|
|5. Exchanges/returns can be a hassle.|
