<p>Wondering if anyone can tell me the numbers for the books I need so I don't have to buy them at the bookstore. My courses are:
-ENGR 100 Sec. 500
-MATH 115 Sec. 005
-CHEM 130 Sec. 100
-CHEM 125/126 Sec. 100</p>

<p>I already have my chemistry lab manual, but i'd like to avoid buying any more books at the bookstore if I can help it. Thanks for the help.</p>

<p>just go to the michigan union bookstore's website.</p>

<p>I don't live that close to Ann Arbor, in fact I won't be going back 'til move-in. I'd kinda like to get my books before then.</p>

<p>I think forgiven meant that you should check which textbooks you need on this website <a href=""&gt;;/a>
not physically</p>

<p>yeah.. you can just order it and get it shipped to your house.</p>

<p>there are so many textbook threads.. acn you freaking search first</p>

<p>If any of them answered my question, I wouldn't have started a new thread. Plus I can't even get to the bookstore website right now.</p>

<p>So where can I check to see how much my books are? And I noticed for some classes they say you need "coursepacks" from excel?</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Go there. It lists the books and the prices. It's the only place that lists books and prices, short of going to the bookstore yourself. Hence it being the only answer people are giving.</p>

<p>That being said, I wouldn't suggest buying things for introductory courses like that ahead of time. There's a chance the class might also require additional things like a workbook that can only be bought along with the textbook. It doesn't matter if you wait until you first move in to find this out then order online if it's cheaper. Most professor's realize that it takes time for students to get books, and won't require them for the first week. And if they do, you're taking a class with hundreds of other people...borrow one.</p>

<p>If I wait til I get to campus, when will I know what books and other supplies I need? Also, if I wait, will there be a shortage of used books?</p>

<p>As soon as you get to campus you can check to see what books you need. The bookstores already have all the stuff catalogued and on the shelves. If they haven't opened it up so you can actually go find your books, you can ask the person working at the desk and they can look up book information on the computer. I went on Sunday to Michigan Book and Supply, and the guy told me how much the used books were for my math classes, and what the textbook was for my physics class.</p>

<p>How do I get the number or whatever for my book so I can try finding it on my own?</p>

<p>You don't need the ISBN. You need the name of the book and the author's name.</p>

<p>yeah i went to michigan book and supply, shaman drum, and the union bookstore today and the only one you could walk around and browse at right now was the union</p>

<p>books are so flippin' expensive. even used or online :T</p>
