Other tips
Searching for second-hand textbooks begins as soon as the new booklists are distributed.

People with wanted ads always get first choice of the newly listed books for sale. Be mindful to price your books reasonably, this is a competitive marketplace.
Don't make special trips when collecting books, just fit it into your normal routine.
Only buy secondhand workbooks that have not been written in.
Many book suppliers have very good returns polices that will enable you to continue looking for second-hand texts, even after submitting your new book order - check your suppliers returns policy.

Be considerate to others by delisting your ads promptly as your books sell - this assists everyone using the service.
