Why should I use CourseBooks.com?

CourseBooks.com was created to help students save money on textbooks, and we are confident that we are the best textbook price comparison site on the web. We are so confident of this that we guarantee that CourseBooks.com returns the lowest prices on the Internet for your books. If you purchase your books through CourseBooks.com and discover that another online merchant is selling the same books for cheaper, we will refund the difference.

We also allow students at your school to sell their own textbooks through our website, making the shopping process even more convenient for you.

How does CourseBooks.com get it's prices?

CourseBooks.com traverses through the prices of thousands of online merchants, filters out the junk, and returns the five most relevant results. We don't want you to waste time sifting through dozens of online book listings. If Amazon.com's price for your Intro Economics textbook is $50 more than the price on Half.com, why would you want to see Amazon's book listing? CourseBooks.com has worked hard to create an shopping experience that delivers accurate, concise, and affordable book listings.

I can't find my courses on the site! What's up with that?

Although we strive to include as many courses on the site as possible, some will be missing. It's possible that your professor didn't submit the course book list to the registrar. Don't worry though: if you know the title, author, or ISBN of your class's books, you can still use the Book Search

Can I sell my books back on CourseBooks.com?

Definitely. Go to your school's page, then click on the sell tab in the navigation bar. We will find the highest buyback prices for your book on the Internet, including offers from dozens of online merchants. If none of those offers appeal to you, you can list your book in a local book exchange and sell the book to students at your school.

How can I be sure that I'm ordering the right books?

CourseBooks.com does not sell books. We compare the prices of thousands of online vendors and return the lowest and most relevant offers to you. To make sure you're ordering the correct books, we recommend you double check your books' details once you reach the 3rd party vendor's website.
