    Textbooks

    Hi all,
    Can anyone give an idea that textbook should be brought to the island, or buy them at school bokstore? We can buy used/new books cheap, but airline will charge baggage fee. Does school bookstore sell books cheap? I'm wondering which way is better, financially. I appreciate if someone give me about this info.
    Thank you.

    When I was on the island it was cheaper to get the text books here in the states on sites such as amazon (especially the used ones). The downside is bringing them on the flight. I just spread them around (had two suitcases) and a carry-on. I do not know the prices in the bookstore (they are probably retail prices), but for the purpose of guaranteeing you have what you need (hopefully at good prices) I would just purchase them before going.

    Please but all your books for the semester before you leave because the bookstore at the island has closed .All the reccommended books are in the library but if you want your own copy buy them them in the states . The books should not weight too much
