    I'm studying for my bachelor of early education.
    I also found that the student forums/chats weren't that great for buying secondhand books but a lot of my subjects have had Facebook pages where I have sourced a couple of books too.

    Oh wow!! That sucks! I did a tertiary entrance program to get into uni and it was all online, no textbooks needed at all! Odd...I thought you were going to say law or medicine or something like that

    Also, most Tafe/Uni's usually have a scholarship for students who can't afford to buy books, it's usually around $500ish. Maybe try looking into it and see what you can find.

    A friend of mine started studying recently and centrelink/her job network (or whatever they are called) payed for all her books.

    It's insane isn't it?

    I shop around but it still so expensive
    Some good sites are -
    Bookdepository
    Fishpond
    Coop bookshop
    Abe books
    occasionally eBay has some good bargains
    And gum tree

    Will you be eligible for any study related payments? I get PES and got a $208 education entry payment when i first started studying. It's not a lot in terms of textbooks but would help if you are eligble.
