GUIDELINESDoes the condition of my books matter? Yes. Your books must be in "good" condition or better. This means all pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include some notes and highlighting. If your book originally came with a CD, study guide, or other supplement, it must be included. CDs must be in working condition. A book is not considered to be in good condition if any of the following apply:
- Water damage
- Missing or torn pages/cover
- Stains or mildew
- Damaged spine/binding
- Excessive writing/highlighting
If your book is not in good condition the quoted price may be reduced. Decisions regarding the condition of a book will be determined by our staff at the time they are received. Once you send your books, they cannot be returned for any reason.
What is an ISBN?
The ISBN is the 10 or 13 digit number located on the back cover of any book near the bar code. It is also listed inside the book on the copyright page. The ISBN is unique to every book, so it is the best way to identify the exact edition of a book.
Do you buy Instructor's Editions?
Yes. We pay the equivalent of the quoted price for the student edition ISBN. Instructor's editions typically contain the same content as the student edition. The only difference will be markings displayed on the cover, such as "Instructor's Edition", "Complimentary Copy", "Free Copy", or "Not for Sale". Please note: The book will be considered "Annotated" if it contains answers and/or instructor's notes, even if "Instructor's Edition" is printed on the cover.
Do you buy Annotated Instructor's Editions?
No, we do not buy Annotated Instructor's Editions.
Do you buy International Editions?
No, we do not purchase International Editions.
Do you buy loose-leaf textbooks?
Yes, we purchase Loose-Leaf textbooks. Loose-leaf textbooks are not bound. The pages are usually meant for a three ring binder. Loose-leaf textbooks are sometimes referred to as "a la carte" editions.
