    Default 2nd Hand Textbooks?

    Hi guys, just wondering if anyone knows of a website specifically for second hand text books for study?

    I have tried both ebay and gumtree and I cannot find this textbook
    "Student Nurse - A Clinical Survival Guide" by Reid, Searl, Dwyer, Ryan & Moxam....

    It is the last textbook I need to get ahold of for the Diploma of Nursing at Tafe.

    If there are some other great sites for 2nd hand books, please share

    Thanks in advance!

    That's brand new but the price is a little excessive. I bought mine off ebay for $22. Which is about the same as what you can buy it for from a TAFE bookshop. If you have a TAFE nearby dropping in and having a look might be an idea?

    You could easily make do without that book or buy an alternative. It's just a small palm size reference book. All the information will be contained within your other textbooks.

    or look them up on booko. com. au ( a search engine for books) you can often get them there for the same price as second hand. It sorts them into the cheapest price- including postage- then directs you to the site. Great site for all students.
