I've just realized that certain books on amazon can be purchased used from 0.01p with like a few pounds delivery charge. Is this legitimate because I often use ebay for buying textbooks etc and it seems I can save a whole lot of money by using amazon. So let's say I search up a Maths A level texbook and click on it on amazon. Then near the bottom of the product's picture it says like X amount used from 10p. Is this literally the same book being sold. If it is I can't believe how much money I've wasted on ebay... :P

I buy all my books from Amazon.. .Haven't been on Ebay for YEARS! All my friends buy their books form Amazon as well - they get them for like 99p with delivery charge... Some crazy ones even bought like 25 books (if I remember right) and got free delivery. xD This was a few years ago though. But Amazon seems to be a good place to buy books (and sell your old ones too! )

It is legitimate. I usually buy common textbooks from Amazon for under £5, but always check eBay too; it occasionally has a cheaper listing. Unfortunately, the cheapest M5 textbook is about £15. :unsure:

Yes it will be the same book.You will probably get a more professional seller on Amazon than on ebay.

Use this website

http://www.bookfinder.com/

(having set your location) and asking for prices including shipping and you will find the cheapest copies of a book. Make sure you choose the correct edition. Often the same copy of a book is listed on more than one website.

German Amazon and Alibris are usually cheaper on shipping than Amazon.co.uk

The further maths class at my school doesn't do FP3 or M4/5; they're doing D2 this year...

Ahhh noobs :3 Imho FP3 is much more beneficial than D2, which, don't get me wrong, isn't a bad module. But it's much more like an S or M - very specialised.
