How do you know what textbooks you need for each class?

    Log-in to Webreg, and on the bottom right corner of the screen, click on "Buy books." The system will then generate a booklist based on the classes on your current schedule, if your professors have submitted their lists of required items. Most of the time one or two of your professors will tell you what books to get on your first day of class, and so not all of your classes will have items listed.

    You could also do a google search, find the rutgers bookstore, go to the textbooks section and enter in your class numbers. I'd try to get them off amazon or from someone from facebook, the bookstore will rip you off.

    If I were you I would wait until after the first couple of days before buying textbooks. Some professors don't even use textbooks (or use different ones from the ones listed). Plus you'll get their syllabus with the exact one instead of just a assumed book.
