When Purchasing Your Textbooks
In the store, MC Books & More’s textbook department is arranged alphabetically by academic department, then numerically by course and CRN(Course Reference Number). To ensure that you purchase the correct textbooks for your class, compare your class schedule with the department, course and CRN listed on the shelf tags.
Each shelf tag also indicates whether a textbook is REQUIRED, RECOMMENDED, OPTIONAL or SUBSTITUTE. Online, our booklists also indicate whether a textbook is REQUIRED, RECOMMENDED, OPTIONAL or SUBSTITUTE. Definitions are below.
You may wish to consult with your instructor before making any purchase other than the Required text.
means that the faculty member requires the textbook for class work, reading assignments, quizzes and exams.
means that the faculty member has suggested the textbook for additional information about the course.
means that the textbook may be of assistance in completing the course effectively. It is not Required.
means that another version of the required textbook (such as the textbook by itself instead of a bundled package) has been made available for purchase. You do not need to purchase the required text book if you are purchasing the substitute.
