How do you find out what books you’ll need for classes in college.
This probably sounds stupid but I’m kinda confused. They told us at Orientation that it was ok to wait until the first day but I don’t wanna do that. How would we even find out what books we need? There’s no list, no class description, nothing. So yeah, I’m kinda confused.
Well, you could go to your campus bookstore with a copy of your course schedule and ask if they have the books for your courses available yet. You could also email the professors and ask if they have decided on what books will be required for the course and if they could let you know so you can buy them early (trust me, most professors have to fight with students who don’t want to buy the books at all — you’ll be a breath of fresh air to them). Or you can just wait until the first day of class when you get the syllabus, which should have a list of all required course materials within the first couple of pages.
How do I find out what college books I need before I go to class for the first time.
Your schedule will have the course number and name listed. When you go to the bookstore, you will tell them Math101, History263A, etc. The professors will have notified the bookstore what books they will be using so the store knows what to order in.Often, college bookstores also have websites. You can go to the website and look up on there what books they have listed for the class. Doing it this way, you may be able to try to buy the books somewhere else for cheaper (meaning online, used).

Take your class schedule to your school’s book store and the clerks can explain how you to find your books. I know how that goes starting college can be a little scary. Good luck with school! I hope you do well!
How do I know what textbooks I need for my college classes.
I’ve already got my schedule ready for the semester. I have Eng 103, Soc 101, ISP 120, and Discover Chicago. However, my schedule doesn’t say what books I actually need for the classes. How do I find out this information?
One of two ways usually:1-take your schedule to the school bookstore and make sure you know the specific section of the course you are in. For example, you may have Eng 103-01 or Soc 101-04. The section indicates what class you are in and what professor is teaching the class. Sometimes each section requires different books so it is very important to know this information. The way it worked in my school was the books at the bookstore were organized by course name and number and then by section, so you’d just find your books that way.2-The other option is to just wait until you get to class and the books you need will be listed on the professor’s course syllabus. From experience, I have noticed that sometimes a professor will list a book as required before you get to class (because they submit their book lists way before the start of the term), however once you get to class they may decide that a certain book is either only for reference or supplemental material or sometimes not needed at all.It is important to note a few things in regards to textbooks:Full title of the book(s)Author and or publisher of the book(s)Year publishedEdition (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc).Another important piece of information you may want to get is the ISBN number. This is a universal coding system for all books (not just college texts). It is usually on a bar code on the back of the book. It will definitely be useful if you want to purchase textbooks either online or at a place other than the college bookstore (which is highly recommended if you want to try to save some money). Also, sometimes campus books stores do run out of textbooks for a specific course and they have to be reordered, so this may be a good time if that happens to look into alternate sources of finding the book. This is especially important in reading intensive courses.
how do I find out what books in need for my classes.
college courses–I have no idea how to find out which books I need.
1. On the first day of class, your professor will give you a syllabus. This document includes important information, like the test schedule, the grading, and the required and recommended books..2. At your campus bookstore, they should have textbooks organized by class, and it might say whether they are required or recommended. However, the bookstore might say a book is required but your professor could say it is actually optional.3. If your professor or class has a website, the books could be on there.
What books do i need for college.
ok so im taking Human Development and Developmental Reading classes in college..what books do i need to buy and how much do they cost?
Depends on your school. You go to the college’s bookstore. They have a whole section of class books on shelves. Above each group of books are the classes they are needed for. Make sure to look for not only the class you are taking but the section of that class. Sometimes different teachers request different books for the same subject. There is usually other students working at the college book stores who will help you find the books you need if you are having trouble. Look for used books that cost less.As to cost. I have had college books run anywhere from $20 to $120 each.
How do I find out what text books I need for my classes.
I’m about to start my Freshman year at college…and I know every school is different. Generally though, how do students find out what their text books are for their classes? Is it usually posted online? Do professors send out a mass e-mail with requirements? I’m just a little concerned being that I…
Check the bookstore website. You should be able to put in your course numbers and the required textbooks will come up. Campus bookstores are required by law to make this information available so students can shop around.If you check Y!A, you will find that there are multiple schools of thought about purchasing textbooks before the first day of class. Apparently some professors put books on the list that they don’t intend to use, so some students wait to see which texts will be required before buying anything. However, at my school we had reading assignments to prepare for the first day of class and showing up without a textbook or the reading completed would have been a really good way to make a very bad impression. So you might want to get a feel for how things work at your school so you know whether to buy the books ahead of time or not.
How can I check online for what books I need for my college classes…..
…..so that I don’t have to go to the school to find out and I can order them on amazon.com.
You can look in the college directory to contact your professors and ask them what the books are that you will be needing. There may also be a link on the bookstore website where you can see what books you’ll need.
How do I figure out what books I need for my college classes.
I feel really dumb asking this question because my guidance counselor showed me how to determine what books I would need, but I completely forgot how to. I have my schedule and understand the class name and number, but can not for the life of me figure out which books I need! I want to buy my books online to save…
First step is definitely to go to the bookstore at your college. They’ll have all that information for you and they may even have a web page that you can use to look that stuff up at home and they’ll show you all that. Just let them know that you need a little bit of help, and they’ll help you print out a book list and all that.The next thing you’ll want to do is to go around the book store and actually look at the books see what it is. Is it a packaged set? Is it just a textbook. Sometimes books will come in a package with an online access code that you need for the class. Sometimes they’ll come in a package with supplemental materials. Unfortunately sometimes the professor will require you to buy the package and a lot of the time the publisher will put together a special package with it’s own ISBN number for that package that you can’t get anywhere else.So go around and take a look at what you need. If you just need a single textbook with no access codes or anything you’ll be fine to buy it online. But if you need the codes or a special book package you’ll want to buy it in the store. Many times you’ll find the textbook cheaper online but if you end up needing the codes you’ll pay an arm and a leg for them and lose all the money you saved anyways
