What is best affordable source to get French TEXTBOOKS?

My son's college is asking to get the books from

1. Débuts, Quia Online Workbook / Laboratory Manual Part 2, 3rd Edition
2. French- DeVerneil- Digeon

Textbook 1 site: https://books.quia.com/books

Textbook 2 site: http://www.grtep.com/

They are asking to get access code from above site for eaccess to workbook.

I am not able to find pointers for downloading textbooks sites or renting options.

I did check half.com, but this title is not coming up.

We are not able to find a rental/used book for this title in book store. Even we buy it, it become obsolete at end of semester .
The school library does not have it.

What are the sites for renting/downloading this Textbooks?

Thanks for your guidance.

    If you have the ISBN, type that into your search bar. I have used textbooks.com, chegg.com and even the school bookstore. With the workbook access, you might be more limited in your options.

    Have you tried the French Amazon -- Amazon.fr ?

    You can try textbookrush.com, abebooks.com, and even Amazon. Valore.com is a textbook search site that will give you a list of sites where your book can be found. HOWEVER, the codes are usually one-use only, and anything you buy used will not have a code that you can use. Amazon rents as well as sells, as does Chegg. We've found that both beat our school bookstore, but in one case, the school store sold books with a proprietary code for that school only, so we were stuck with their high price.
