    My son said he didnt feel like a "college student" (i.e.. no longer a HS student) until Orientation was over, it sort of made it feel official when he was done with that.

    My son Billy is taking Acting, Modern Art History, Honors English Lit.,
    and Scripting for Electronic Media for his first college semester.

    The books if bought from the bookstore would cost $425 before tax. I just found them all on amazon for a total of $315 before tax. I'll take that savings.

    See if you can rent them from a source like Chegg. Unless you need to keep the book it is often much cheaper this way. Not that saving $100 isn't awesome.

    I always bought from Amazon whenever possible because you can re-sell. Nice to get at last part of your money back.

    Thanks, the college and amazon also have rental options.
    We may rent in the future, but most of these books are the kind that he or we would want to keep.

    I kept all of my Lit stacks. I have several sets... and LOVE them.

    my DS's were $850, - he couldn't rent all of them and he wasn't able to get a couple yet! So your number looks pretty good.

    Absolutely!! Great shopping, Ma! When I started college we barely had internet/email so Amazon of course wasn't widely used. I tried a few years later (when I was finally finishing my bachelors) but I didn't find very good deals. I did find better deals at Barnes and Noble or the like than I found on the campus bookstore, but I was always scared I'd end up getting the wrong book so I stuck with the campus bookstore. Now I know about ISBNs and wouldn't hesitate.
