What does Textbook Condition Preference mean?

During checkout you can indicate whether we can substitute Used for New or New for Used if your preference is not available.

If you elect to substitute and we don't have your first choice we will automatically provide you with that same title in the condition we do have in-stock. Please note: when a textbook condition substitution occurs there is a change to the final total price of the order. If you elect not to substitute the item will be removed from your order.


What's an ISBN?

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. You can find the ISBN on the back cover of the book near the bar code, or on the copyright page of the book.
