    Borrowing textbooks is usually fine.

    Couple this with good lecture notes and going through any handouts you get and you'll be sorted.

    Look online for pdf versions or buy second hand.

    I would recommend buying the core texts as especially during exam time, the library ones can be out of stock quite easily.*

    There was only one absolutely essential book for my course. I bought about 4/5 over the course of my degree because the library can become out of stock, like Nooodlzzz said. There isn't a huge reading list for psychology though, it's most journal articles which are free (through your student account).

    My university has ebooks that we use online but I'd say borrow library's books to save money
