"SlugBooks doesn't have my textbook" is a myth - we list every freaking textbook that exists. Because SlugBooks compares listings from the largest sources on the internet, if we don't have prices for a specific ISBN (as is the case for 9781269097130), that just means you have to do a little more legwork to get around roadblocks that publishers have created to force you to pay higher prices.


THE BOOK YOU SEARCHED FOR PROBABLY FALLS INTO ONE OF THESE TWO CATEGORIES:
CUSTOM EDITIONS HOMEWORK ACCESS CODE BUNDLES
A custom edition is an abbreviated version of a very popular textbook. Usually the only difference is that they have less content, they're paperback and they have your school's named printed on the front. Because college bookstores are not currently required to provide the non-custom version's ISBN, students are left assuming that the only place they can buy the book is at their bookstore since they don't seem to exist outside of the bookstore website. Homework access codes are often bundled with the texts. These one-time-use homework access codes are your ticket to submitting your homework for a course, but you can often buy the code and the textbook individually, saving a ton of money in the process. Like the custom edition, the access code is often presented as a bundle that can only be purchased through your college bookstore.
HOW TO SAVE MONEY ANYWAY: E-mail your professor to get the ISBN of the non-custom edition and you'll be able to search on SlugBooks and save money. Added bonus: you will likely be able to sell the non-custom version for more than your classmates can when you're done, because more students outside your university will be looking to buy it. HOW TO SAVE MONEY ANYWAY: E-mail your professor to get the ISBNs of the individual bundle components and you'll be able to search for the book on SlugBooks in order to save money. The access code can often be purchased individually at a reduced rate directly from the access code supplier, which is information your professor can provide.
