    Hey I was wondering where the cheapest place to get books are?

    I do not like used books too much, at least not if they are in bad shape.

    Have you guys ever tried buying e-textbooks? Are they worth it?

    I would definitely recommend using Amazon and Ebay - you can check the condition of the books to very good or good, or look at the photos. Another idea is to look at the uni portal online or Facebook groups, as ex-students will sometimes sell their old textbooks on here. Sometimes your union bookshop will also sell used books (I am not sure about Warwick, but they used to do this at the university I studied at) but it will often be more expensive here.
