I'm not too far from you. I start law school in the fall, and I'll be 32 when I'm done. I'm definitely taking notes from this thread on all the advancements in the field of buying and selling textbooks since I was in undergrad.
One thing that has stayed the same is that you get robbed whenever you sell back books.
My whole program is online, so I have completely embraced the "new way" of things. It's nice to go to class with no pants on.
Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
If you can avoid buying expensive books up-front, you don't have to worry about selling them. Buy used or previous editions.
Phillip Kotler's a pretty bright guy, but he doesn't have much new knowledge to add to his 10th edition of "Marketing" that he didn't have in the first nine. I bought an old edition for $8 on-line. Worked fine.
I'm studying for the PE exam and its like I'm in college again. I've already spent about $500 in review and reference material and I'm probably looking at another $200-$300. I've bought most of my used ones off of Amazon.
Just a tip from a buyer, make your book one of the cheaper ones and it will sell quicker.
