What books do I need? How do I get my books?
MC Books and More has detailed instructions on how to search for your textbook(s). Your course information should include both the Course Number and the CRN Number. Noncredit course numbers always start with three letters, followed by three numbers. (Credit classes start with two letters). For example CMP228 is the course number designation for Adobe Acrobat Professional. This designation is very helpful if you do not know the CRN# for your class. The CRN# is the designation for the individual class section. Some courses have just one section, some have many sections, and different sections do not necessarily have the same textbook.
Once you know the CRN# for your class(s) you need to click on the link for the Rockville Bookstore, Germantown Bookstore, or Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus Bookstore to start your search.
If you are not able to visit MC Books & More in person, then you may order textbooks online from our partner MBS Direct. Instructions on how to order textbook(s) books online from MBS Direct.
