Course Texts

INSTRUCTORS: Visit our Course Text page for Instructors if you'd like to order books for a course or just get some information on what we do and what's involved.

 

See below for a list of classes for which we are stocking textbooks. All are U.C. Berkeley classes unless otherwise noted. Information will be updated as books come into the store. (Note: Updates might be a day or two late. Give us a call if you have any questions.)

Most of our books are new, but in some cases we have used copies (noted as such in the list below).

SOLD OUT books can usually be ordered for you. Depending on the source, books take between 4 days and 2 1/2 weeks to reach the store after we order them. Please call (510) 548-0585 to order books or check on the time frame for ordering a particular book.

We are now offering textbook buyback. This uses a database from a used-textbook company, and buyback opportunities and prices depend on that company's needs.
