For example, if you are looking to purchase the 2008 edition of "Science by the Grade: Reproducible Grade 7" and want to be sure you have the right edition, you could enter its ISBN-10 number (1419034359) or its ISBN-13/EAN number (9781419034350). Navigate to Amazon.com, eBay.com or any other online bookstore that sells textbooks, and input both the title and the ISBN of the desired book.
After carefully looking through the results, determine the best option for yourself based on details and price. Each site lists the condition of the item being sold, its price and shipping costs. Double check that the ISBN on the item listing matches the one you are looking for, as different editions of a book may have the same title despite changes and revisions. If this book is for a standard curriculum, it generally needs to be the exact copy specified by the school or teacher.
Search for your textbooks on multiple sites, because one site may offer a better deal than the other at any given time.Learn more about K-12
