To order textbooks from the University Bookstore go to https://shop.uofastore.com/t-textbookdisclaimer.aspx.
Required textbooks may be purchased new or used from other sources as well. If doing
so, you must:
Be absolutely certain you are ordering the correct edition. The ISBN numbers for the
correct edition of each text are shown in the chart below. Do NOT order "international" or "flexible" editions of the textbooks. These editions usually exclude sections, chapters, and/or chapter problems. Be certain
you are ordering the textbook with the correct ISBN. Instructors will not support
the use of editions other than the one listed for your course.
Allow time for delivery well in advance of class start date. Independent sellers of
textbooks may not guarantee on-time delivery, and remaining without a textbook in
accelerated classes for even a few days can cause students to fall significantly behind
in their coursework. The required textbook for each course is a requirement for the
course and must be in hand by the first day of class.
eTextbooks are a viable option if you are located where shipping takes an extraordinary
amount of time. For open book exams, ProctorU (our online proctoring service) requires
eTextbooks to be downloaded to the PC from which the exams are taken. At this time,
ProctorU does not support iPads, Kindles, or any other eReader. Students must receive
special permission from the ProctorU proctor to open up another browser for online
access of an eTextbook. Textbooks are necessary to adequately prepare for the end
of career comprehensive exam. It is important to ensure you have long-term access
or can download the eTextbook for future use.
